Hence, step–pool and cascade morphologies should be viewed as configurations that dissipate available stream energy on gradients that ordinarily would compel movement of any submerged material, without actually moving the stepforming material away. Structural reinforcement of the material’s stability appears to be an essential feature of the morphology, so the presence of large clasts, immobile at most flows and able to become keystones, seems to be the necessary criterion for step formation (Wohl, Madsen and MacDonald (1997) forwarded a similar hypothesis with respect to log steps).
The occurrence of these types is correlated with position in the drainage network. Most small, headward streams are coupled. A special class of slope failures in steep, headward channels is direct failure of the sedimentary fill in the channel or gully. , 2001). Despite their in-channel occurrence, they are landslide-like phenomena rather than fluvial sediment transport by the stream. They are relatively rare in individual channels unless there is an unusually prolific source of sediment immediately adjacent to the upper channel, but they are by no means rare in upland and mountain landscapes.

Whittaker and Jaeggi (1982) experimentally demonstrated the development of step-like features under antidunes in supercritical flow, whereas McDonald and Day (1978) experimentally induced an upstream stepping hydraulic jump that accumulated clasts to form steps. None of these mechanisms has been systematically observed in the field, but reformation of steps has been observed locally under the influence of quite moderate flows (cf.
