Two types of platform plains - mobile and relatively stable are distinguished according to the rate of neotectonic geomorphic processes and position of endogenous sources of energy. Mobile areas are vast marginal parts of platforms up to hundreds kilometers wide which are distinguished by elevated neotectonic activity induced from adjacent orogenes. The rate of neotectonic and geomorphic processes progressively increases towards mountains and nearly reaches values typical for the orogenous regions. Stable areas of platform are far from mountains and outside of the limits of the orogenes' influence. Mobile regions of platforms are transitional from orogenous to stable areas, and the A. suggests to call them " peri-orogenes ". - (L'Ed.)
