Platform areas of each continent show series of planation surfaces equal in number and in the age. The similarity can be attributed to the fact of general isostatic equilibrium of the continents| planation surfaces are formed due to changes of ocean level. Each surface corresponds to epoch of a global transgression : the Late Jurassic - Early Cretaceous surface developed during the " Great Cretaceous transgressions " when the ocean level was 300 to 350 m above the present one, the Eocene-Oligocene, Miocene and Pliocene surfaces correspond to smaller transgressions. - (L'A.)
