  5. federica bianco UDel The LSST Science Collaborations Formed by the

    LSST Project in 2008 to provide a forum to engage the community in interacting with the LSST Project Science Team played an essential part in producing the LSST Science Book in 2009 LSST was recognized as the first large ground-based priority of the astronomical community in the 2010 Decadal Survey

  19. federica bianco UDel The LSST Science Collaborations LSST SCs current

    activities include: • designing and scoping LSST observing strategies for different science cases • learning and testing the LSST pipeline and science platform 
 • identifying gap in scientific preparation that would impair the LSST success in theoretical advancement (e.g. predictions on photometric observables, sparse time series analysis), software (e.g. sparse time series analysis tools, crowded field photometry, TOM), existing data (e.g. multiwavelenght coverage of Deep Drilling Fields) 
 • preparing of User-Generated data products

    North Ecliptic Survey The NES is an extension to reach the Ecliptic at higher airmass than the WFD survey typically covers, no u Galactic Plane (1.7%): covers the region where LSST is expected to be highly confused by the density of stellar sources; fewer total exposures/ field and does not collect in pairs South Celestial Pole (2.2%): higher airmass decl>−65 degrees. includes ugrizy, but takes fewer exposures/field than the WFD and does not collect in pairs.

  30. federica bianco NYU - snap or no snap? Refining the

    observing strategy • Snap/visit exposure times:
 Many prefer ~30s (1snap/visit) [7% more efficient] • Some prefer 2x15s snaps - limited area only? (white dwarf transits, rapid variability/saturation) • 1 request for 2s/28s snaps • 1 minisurvey for 5s visits • 1 minisurvey for 1s-15s trailed images
