The analysis of what controls why rivers are the way they are, and how and why they change is crucial in predicting river dynamics and deriving classification systems that can assist management. A variety of factors control the pattern of fluvial styles in a river system across spatial scales. The geomorphic response of a river to an individual control, such as stream power for example, will vary due to a combination of other contributing factors such as geology and climate.
