Abstract

The (CO)-C-12(J=3-2/1-0) and (CO)-C-13(T=3-2/1-0) observations with ASTE and Mopra telescopes have been carried out toward the giant molecular clouds (GMCs) in the N48/N49 regions in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), which are located at the boundary of two kpc-scale Supergiant Shell (SGS) LMC 4 & LMC 5. The star formation is relatively evolved in the N48 region, which is just located at the boundary of SGSs, than in the N49 region. The clumps in the N48 show higher n(H-2) and T-kin than those in the N49, but their densities are not so high as the LMC cluster forming clumps. The collision of two SGSs actually enhances the star formation but further evolution seem to be necessary for subsequent cluster formation.
