Maps of seabed geomorphology provide foundational information for a broad range of marine applications. These maps rely on bathymetry data from which geomorphic units can be identified, supported by knowledge of the geological setting and/or processes. Bathymetry data are becoming more widely available thanks to several key global initiatives, notably the Seabed 2030 project, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and UN Ocean Decade, together with global recognition of the value of the Blue Economy. To contribute most effectively to supporting these global efforts, geomorphic characterisation of the seabed requires standardised multi-scalar and interjurisdictional approaches that can be applied locally, regionally and internationally based on the best available data. An ongoing collaboration between geoscience agencies in the United Kingdom (British Geological Survey), Norway (Geological Survey of Norway), Ireland (Geological Survey Ireland and University College Cork) and Austr.....
