The development of giant, shallow, carbonate platforms characterizes the Late Murgabian paleoenvironment. Most of the reef buildups are located on the African—Arabian margin. The main terrigenous marine deposits are found on the northern margin of India and on northwest Australia. They also occur along the Eurasian margin from Dobrogea to Kopet Dagh (northeast Iran). Mixed terrigenous or fine, clastic—evaporitic basins are located in the northern part of the Permian Basin, in west—central Europe (Zechstein), in part of the Eastern European Platform to the western side of the Urals and on the Arabian Platform. The North Caspian depocenter is filled with a very thick pile of evaporites. Large-scale continental to marginalmarine deposits occur on the northeast Indian Plate, on the African Plate, on the Brazilian craton, and along the southern part of Eurasia.
