Deep Sky Surveys in the LSST Deep Drilling Fields

In addition to the deep-wide-fast survey mode in which it will operate for 90% of its life, the LSST will devote a significant amount of time to observing select “Deep Drilling Fields,” of which four extragalactic examples have already been identified. These fields offer some of the best prospects for synergy between LSST and radio, millimeter, and submillimeter (RMS) probes of the cosmic histories of gas accretion, star formation, and mass assembly. In this talk, I will discuss planned and possible deep RMS surveys that can both bolster and guide analyses of the LSST’s Deep Drilling Field datasets. I will also highlight the constraints imposed on such analyses by limited multiwavelength spectroscopic followup.
