Two fields in the Lockman Hole were mapped at 95 µm and 175 µm using ISOPHOT. A simple program code combined with PIA works well to correct for drift in the detector responsivity. The number density of 175 µm sources is 3-10 times higher than expected from the no-evolution model.
Key words: galaxies: evolution galaxies: starburst cosmology: observations infrared: galaxies
* Based on observations with ISO, an ESA project with instruments funded by ESA member states (especially the PI countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom) and with the participation of ISAS and NASA.
