A volcanic ash layer, which occurs in postglacial alluvium and colluvium at several localities in southern Alberta and northwestern Montana, is named the Galata ash. The stratigraphic relations and physical properties of the ash indicate a single episode of volcanic activity and possible correlation with an ash layer in southwestern Glacier Park assigned on the basis of pollen analyses to the postglacial Xerothermic period.
