The cosmic radio dipole and local structure effects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We investigate the contribution of a local over- or under-density to linear estimates of the cosmic dipole. We focus on radio continuum surveys. Recently it was shown that the radio dipole amplitude is larger than expected from the corresponding dipole of the CMB. We show that a significant contribution to this excess could come from local structure.
