Vince Gaffney and Ken Thomson acknowledge the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (ALSF Marine, administered by English Heritage) for funding the North Sea Palaeolandscapes Project.

It is with deepest sadness that Simon Fitch and Vince Gaffney record the recent death of Dr Kenneth Thomson, co-author of this paper and a principal investigator on the North Sea Project. Ken was lecturer in Basin Dynamics at Birmingham and an acknowledged expert on the interpretation and visualisation of seismic data. Ken was an inspiration to all who worked with him and, to us, a great colleague and an irreplaceable friend.
