Names that other countries have for this feature:
A small intermittent stream, approximately 5km long flowing from Howard Glacier into Lake Fryxell between Canada and Commonwealth Glaciers in the Taylor Valley. Delta Stream is on the south valley wall in Taylor Valley. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-MF10
Although undoubtedly seen by geologists of the British Antarctic Expedition (Terra Nova expedition, BrAE), 1910-13, no record was made of this stream. First studied on the ground by Professor T L Péwé of the US Deep Freeze III, 1957-58, on 21 December 1957. Named by Péwé because the stream has a series of deltas along its length which have been cut through as the stream was rejuvenated. The rejuvenation being caused by the lowering of the former glacial lake.
