Kolbe's finds and similar discoveries led skeptics to try to explain
them away.

The two main explantions were wind-blown dust and undersea "turbidity
currents that carried material from continental rivers.  Many geologists
favour these alternative explanations.

For example, J.K. Rigby and L.H. Burckle, in a 1958 SCIENCE article, pre-
ferred the turbidity current explanation; others have presented evidence
that windblown sand might explain deep-sea sand far from land.

Kolbe answered these criticisms by pointing out that either mechanisms
would likely lead to mixtures of freshwater and oceanic diatoms, whereas
he found a layer of pure freshwater diatoms.

Still, the debate continues - often with much heat, but on a scientific,
not an occult level.
