    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;This is accompanying material to the DESC Note &amp;quot;Recommended Target Fields for Commissioning the Vera C. Rubin Observatory&amp;quot; found at &lt;a href="http://arxiv.org/abs/2010.15318"&gt;http://arxiv.org/abs/2010.15318&lt;/a&gt;. The abstract is below:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;The commissioning team for the Vera C. Rubin observatory is planning a set of engineering and science verification observations with the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) commissioning camera~\citep{2018SPIE10700E..3DH} and then the Rubin Observatory LSST Camera~\citep{2018SPIE10705E..0DR}.&amp;nbsp; The time frame for these observations is not yet fixed, and the commissioning team will have flexibility in selecting fields to observe.&amp;nbsp; In this document, the Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC) Commissioning Working Group presents a prioritized list of target fields appropriate for testing various aspects of DESC-relevant science performance, grouped by season for visibility from Rubin Observatory at Cerro Pachon. Our recommended fields include Deep-Drilling fields (DDFs) to full LSST depth for photo-$z$ and shape calibration purposes, HST imaging fields to full depth for deblending studies, and an $\sim$200 square degree area to 1-year depth in several filters for higher-level validation of wide-area science cases for DESC. We also anticipate that&amp;nbsp; commissioning observations will be needed for template building for transient science over a broad RA range. We include detailed descriptions of our recommended fields along with associated references.&amp;nbsp; We are optimistic that this document will continue to be useful during LSST operations, as it provides a comprehensive list of overlapping data-sets and the references describing them.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;This repository contains the&amp;nbsp;code, and data, along with the background references and research used to produce the tables and figure in the Note. &amp;nbsp;In this repository you will find:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ol&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;A PDF version of the note.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;An exported Google sheet containing the suggested fields with the name&amp;nbsp;&amp;#39;Commissioning targets export version 10 20.xlsx&amp;#39;.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Two Jupyter notebooks: airmass\_calendar\_noURL.ipynb (used to make the tables and the *.csv files), and visibility\_figures.ipynb used to make the observability figures.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;A copy of the csv files generated by the airmass notebook (and used by the visibility notebook to make the figures).&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ol&gt;
