Discusses the formation of shore platforms and analyzes the processes, using examples from the coast of Victoria. The terms that have been used in describing platforms, such as "normal," "abnormal," "storm-wave," are compared, and dropping of the term "abnormal" is suggested. The effects of water-layer weathering, growth of marine organisms, breakers, and other factors are treated.
