We appreciate the time and effort expended by Edwards in preparing his discussion of our article (Brown et al., 2004b). We published our observations on the interaction of the development of growth-faulted subbasins and sediment fill because of the successes that we have had in integrating wire-line-log analysis, large volumes of three-dimensional (3-D) seismic data, paleontological data, and modern concepts of stratigraphy and sedimentology into a coherent model. We shared this model to stimulate future research on development of growth-faulted subbasins and their sediment fill. We believe that most geoscientists recognize the common method of developing stratigraphic architecture...
