Narrative

A glacial meltwater tributary stream, 1.6 mi long, flowing N from Howard Glacier into Delta Stream in Taylor Valley, Victoria Land. Spaulding Pond lies along this watercourse. The name was suggested by 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 hydrologist Edward Furlong, a member of the field team that established stream gaging stations on streams flowing into Lake Fryxell in the 1990-91 season.
