    Abstract: With Mapping Nearby Galaxies at APO integral field spectroscopy, we present a resolved analysis of star formation for 29 jellyfish galaxies in nearby clusters, identified from radio continuum imaging taken by the Low Frequency Array. Simulations predict enhanced star formation on the "leading half" (LH) of galaxies undergoing ram pressure stripping, and in this work we report observational evidence for this elevated star formation. The dividing line (through the galaxy center) that maximizes this star formation enhancement is systematically tied to the observed direction of the ram-pressure-stripped tail, suggesting a physical connection between ram pressure and this star formation enhancement. We also present a case study on the distribution of molecular gas in one jellyfish galaxy from our sample, IC3949, using Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array CO J = 1 − 0, HCN J = 1 − 0, and HCO+ J = 1 − 0 observations from the ALMA MaNGA Quenching and Star Formation Survey. The H2 depletion time (as traced by CO) in IC3949 ranges from ∼1 Gyr in the outskirts of the molecular gas disk to ∼11 Gyr near the galaxy center. IC3949 shows a clear region of enhanced star formation on the LH of the galaxy where the average depletion time is ∼2.7 Gyr, in line with the median value for the galaxy on the whole. Dense gas tracers, HCN and HCO+, are only detected at the galaxy center and on the LH of IC3949. Our results favor a scenario in which ram pressure compresses the interstellar medium, promoting the formation of molecular gas that in turn fuels a localized increase of star formation.
