Differences in the length properties and occurrence frequencies among types of channel links occur in natural stream networks. We define six types of channel links: (1) S (source) links, (2) TS (tributary source) links, (3) B (bifurcating) links, (4) TB (tributary bifurcating) links, (5) CT (cis‐trans) links, and (6) T (tributary) links. The topologically random model of channel networks provides the basis for a series of equations defining the probability of occurrence of each link type in a topologically random population of networks of any specified magnitude. Examination of interior link lengths from 12 stream networks supports the hypothesis that the interior link types defined here differ in their length properties.
