Geomorphology of Lightning Creek valley, Manning Park, southwestern British Columbia


Geomorphology of Lightning Creek valley, Manning Park, southwestern British Columbia



Syesis 1(1-2): 65-79



ISSN/ISBN: 0082-0601

The physical features of Lightning C:reek Valley, notably its V-shaped cross-section, its overdeepening with respect to glaciated tributary valleys in its western part, and the presence of outwash deposits in its eastern part, show that the valley was occupied by a major late Pleistocene ice-diverted stream which flowed westward through the Cascade Mountains. This evidence, in turn, indicates that the Cordilleran ice-sheet had virtually disappeared from the valleys of the Cascade Mountains at a time when it still effectively blocked the valleys of the adjacent Interior Plateau. Aggradation of the Lightning Creek Valley has taken place in postglacial time with the creation of a chain of lakes, dammed either by fans built by tributary streams or by talus and avalanches falling from the oversteepened walls.
