A glacial meltwater distributary stream, 0.25 mi long, which flows E from Maria Creek (q.v.) into the SW end of Lake Fryxell, close W of Green Creek, in Taylor Valley, Victoria Land. The name was suggested by hydrologist Diane McKnight, leader of a USGS team which made extensive studies of the hydrology and geochemistry of streams and ponds in the Lake Fryxell basin, 1987-94. Named after USGS hydrologist Elizabeth C. Bowles, a member of the field team in the 1987-88 summer season, who conducted a study of organic geochemistry of streams flowing into Lake Fryxell.
