S. Cainswrites: In this paper the authors correctly surmise that the distribution of the Punt sandstones was controlled by subtle pre-existing basin topography, i.e. the sandstones were deposited in subtle lows. However, it is striking that in the majority of their figures the sandstones are now on structural time highs (e.g. figs 4, 6 and 9b). This author has seen many similar examples in the Eocene and Paleocene of the Central and Northern North Sea. In these situations, interpreters are often keen to believe the sandstones are really located on topographic lows, so the underlying time high is explained...
