I was just looking through a past paper (2018) mark scheme and came across the term “marine platform”, I am wondering if anyone can enlighten me with what this? I’m under the impression it’s a wave cut platform however I’m unsure. Also, is this a common term for anyone? I’ve never heard of this before.

marine platforms are formed on emergent coastlines. they are quite large and sloping.
yes i suppose it's pretty much a wave cut platform where high energy destructive waves carve into the platform and when the waves' influence is removed due to sea level fall/rise then the landforms are left behind (land is higher than the waves).

for some reason it's really difficult to find online?? its like a raised beach/wave cut platform which I only found through seneca because a guy in my class told me it doesn't exist even though I guess it does exist just has a fancy 'marine' to the title.

Okay, I appreciate that response, thank you. And yes it was difficult to find online hence why I had to ask here. So I’m guessing you only did ria’s, fjords and fjards and dalmation coasts as your emergence landforms?
