Channel typology for the river Feshie in the Cairngorm Mts, Scotland
Summary: The channel of the River Feshie was examined in order to identify and delimit the channel sections of different type, and explain the reasons for its high complexity developed in spite of almost uniform bedrock geology. The numerical taxonomy methods were applied. These were: the furthest neighbour, the median, the centroid, the mean and finally the nearest neighbour methods. Fourteen attributes of the channel and the transported material were taken into account. The taxonomy procedures were supplied with complementary, however subjective method based on the number of limits showing rapid change in characteristics describing succesive reaches of the river. The procedures resulted in four channel types identified. Their character and sequence result from the late-glacial and post-glacial history of the area, this is: the glacial erosion followed by the capture of todays upper part of the River Feshie, formation of glacial and fluvioglacial deposits being now the source of the bedload material, and finally the flushy hydrological regime of the river.
