Abstract

Deep-water deposits of the Isaac Formation, Windermere Supergroup, are well exposed in the Cariboo Mountains of British Columbia, Canada (Figure 1). At a site referred to as Castle Creek, seven channel-levee complexes (numbered CC-1 through CC-7 in ascending stratigraphic order) have been mapped by Arnott and Ross (chapter 22, this volume). This paper focuses on the architecture of channel Complex 2 located on the north side of the Castle Creek glacier (Figure 2A). A photo of the exposure looking north from the glacier is shown in Figure 2B.
