This paper aims to illustrate the implications of one particular case study, in the Swiss Alps, for the understanding of the relationship between river channel form and process, and to raise some of the methodological issues associated with small-scale site-specific research. 3 related themes are considered: the nature of the link between channel form and process revealed by intensive study of a dynamic river system; the significance of the conditional role of channel geomorphology in this link; and the implications for the assumed dependence, independence and irrelevance of morphological variables with changes in spatial and temporal scale
