... RCYBP and glaciers were restricted to high cirques. It is probable that the early period of fill deposition (ca. 11 500–10 000 RCYBP) was initiated when mountain tributary trunk streams of the Bow River were choked with debris-flow-delivered sediment during the construction of paraglacial debris fans...

... and laboratory evidence, it is concluded that the ridges are drumlins which formed by a process of basal accretion beneath ice of the Bow Valley glacier. Variations in ridge morphology are attributed partly to postdepositional deformation, and partly to dynamic conditions prevailing in the ice at the time...

... rock glaciers average 150 feet in thickness, inactive rock glaciers, 70 feet. The upper surface of most rock glaciers is clothed with turf or lichens. Sets of parallel rounded ridges and V-shaped furrows—longitudinal near the heads of some rock glaciers and transverse, bowed downstream, on the lower...

..., when Classical Wisconsin glaciation was near its maximum. Due to the inhospitable conditions then prevailing, these upper terraces contain few or no fossils. During a warm interstade that followed, the glaciers shrank and Bow River deepened and enlarged its valley until ice readvance, about 12 000...

...Norman D. Smith; James P. M. Syvitski Abstract Bow Lake is a small alpine lake in western Alberta, Canada, mainly fed by glacial meltwater. Suspended sediment loads, high only during summer months, are transported through the lake dominantly by interflows within the epilimnion. Consideration...
