I believe that most geologists would attribute inter-regional transgressions...

This would, of course result in global dimensions for the transgressions...

I don't understand why the focus on global and inter-regional transgressions. Aren't most transgressions/regressions more limited in extent and a result of local interactions between sea height and subsidence/elevation?
