Abstract

The concept of variable textural maturity at grain junctions in igneous rocks was first introduced by Holness et al. (2005). The papers of Holness et al. (2007a, 2007b) demonstrate how this concept can be applied to cumulates, and present a hypothesis to explain the observation of excursions in textural maturity, either localized, or stepwise, within a cumulate pile. The comments by McBirney et al. refer to difficulties they have in accepting our hypothesis, and we welcome the opportunity to clarify some confusions in Holness et al. (2007a, 2007b). Here we identify the issues to be addressed with separate headings.
