The net result may be akin to the passage of largescale sediment waves documented by Church (1983) on the Bella Coola River in British Columbia. Subsequent adjustment to these changes in regime is often evident through phases of aggradation and incision, resulting in staircases of terraces, some of the best examples being those along the Rivers Findhorn and Feshie. The specific impact of the glacial legacy varies according to differences in the regional and local glacial history; thus that for the Caimgorms differs from that for the Southern Uplands (Sissons, 1976).
