dc.descriptionAbstract: The topological properties of 10 stream networks having moderate to well developed trellis drainage patterns have been compared with those expected in a topologically random population. Magnitude 4 subnetworks show a systematic departure from expectation which can be related to geological controls. A link type classification system was developed and a series of equations describing the probability of occurrence of link types in topologically random populations derived. Analysis of the link structure in the channel networks showed small but persistent deviations from expectation in the well developed trellis pattern streams. The general conclusion is that the topologically random model is a very useful standard with which to compare real channel networks.-
