Description (see definition): An almost circular lagoon, 0.4 mi in diameter, lying at the head of Jason Harbor to which it is connected by a narrow cut, in Cumberland West Bay, South Georgia. The name Little Jason was in use at South Georgia prior to 1920. The feature was surveyed in 1929 by DI personnel, who named it Nogood Lagoon because a motor boat could not get through the entrance. The South Georgia Survey (SGS), 1951-52, reported that the feature is known locally as Little Jason or (in Norwegian) Lille Jason. In order to indicate the nature of the feature, and at the same time to conform with local usage, the name Little Jason Lagoon is approved.
