What is it about?
Adopting new paradigms in scientific research may markedly improve the scientific understanding of bed form dynamics. We highlight the challenges and opportunities it poses, and present the guidelines to tackle the technical challenges ahead (e.g., setting engineered data sharing standards to build a global bed form data set.) We also describe the potential to develop bed form data analysis software through collaborative effort on, for example, the Bedforms-ATM freely accessible software platform, which allows for analyzing the variability and dimensionality of bed form fields

Why is it important?
Similar goals were achieved through collaborative effort from other scientific communities (e.g., astronomers, ecologists, turbulence-focused researchers), which resulted in important scientific advancements
