Two generalisations of Brownian motion to several-dimensional time are considered and the topology of their level sets is analysed. It is shown that for these maps non-trivial contours are quite rare — their union has Lebesgue measure zero. The boundedness of all contours is established for the generalisation due to Lévy. For the other, the Brownian sheet, a partial result concerning the behaviour of the zero contour near the boundary is established.
