Names that other countries have for this feature:
A glacial meltwater distributary stream approximately 350m long, which flows eastwards from Maria Creek (q.v.) into the southwest end of Lake Fryxell, close west of Green Creek, in Taylor Valley, Victoria Land.
The name was suggested by hydrologist Diane McKnight, leader of a U.S. Geological Survey (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. The feature was used as a surrogate for hydrological work on Maria Creek, due to the danger of calving ice from the face of Canada Glacier.
