As environmental seismology has been rapidly growing and developing over the past years, one of the fields that is benefitting from this seismic revolution is the study of geomorphic processes. Seismic methods provide a unique and powerful tool for the observation of geomorphic activity, allowing us to address questions that were not possible (or extremely difficult) to tackle with other techniques. From the perspective of geomorphologists, we give an overview of three general areas in which seismic techniques have been or have the potential to enable significant advances in our understanding of geomorphic processes: (1) the occurrence, timing, and triggering of geomorphic events, (2) the dynamics of geomorphic processes, (3) fluvial bedload transport, and we look towards future developments in integrative geomorphic system monitoring. In order to keep the seismic advances coming, integration between geomorphologists and seismologists is key, as the community continues to identify key geomorphic questions that seismology can help answer and in parallel develops the theory, analytical techniques, and measurement strategies needed for application to new geomorphic questions.
