The hydrographic network structure of continents conveys the chief peculiarities of relief of mainland at the planetary level of organization. In eastern Eurasia, it is a general northward ramp occupying the entire Siberian part of Russia and the central elevation of the Tibetan Plateau and extending further in the form of Arctic shelves. The other continents are characterized by some elevation of their marginal parts, and by the presence of central basins with hydrographic nodes and rivers, or catchments.
