Submarine gullies are small-scale, confined channels on the order of tens of metres depth that form one of the most common morphological features of high-latitude continental slopes. Gully morphology varies in width, incision depth, length, sinuosity, branching order, shelf-incision, cross-sectional shape and gully spacing, with six distinct gully signatures recognized on high-latitude continental slopes (Gales et al. 2013a, b). Here we analyse the morphology of slope gullies off Halley and Filchner troughs in the southern Weddell Sea (Fig. 1a–f).
