The occurence of cluster microforms in natural rivers is examined using data collected from 3 mountain streams. A statistical analysis using logistic regression was performed to examine the correlation between the occurence of clusters and various combinations of reach-scale parameters. It was found that clustering was most strongly tied to riffle-pool type reaches. Observations from this study suggest that clusters can be described as bed features that form out of the structural organization of grains in cobble-size sediment within depositional mountain reaches, for which the majority of the sediment can become mobilized by yearly peak flows
