The difference between these two types is rather arbitrary, because the passive margins of continents also undergo the rift stage...

... of the Terek River the sea abruptly deepens to 780 m. This central deep is asymmetrical; the western slope at the foot of the Caucasus Mountains is much steeper than the eastern slope. The central deeper part of the central Caspian Sea bottom, about 37 percent of its area, is covered with “mud,” i.e. , 50...
