Summary: Ocean Drilling Program Leg 177 was designed to study the evolution of the South Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean on tectonic to millennial timescales. Toward this end, we recovered high-quality sedimentary sequences at seven sites between 41° and 53°S, which constitute the raw material for studying the Cenozoic history of the high-latitude South Atlantic Ocean. Here we summarize the principal findings made by shipboard scientists that have been reported in numerous publications since the completion of Leg 177 and provide a historical summary of the development of this sector of the Southern Ocean.
