Serra-Kiel et al.'s discussion provides an excellent opportunity to clarify some of the correlation problems in the south Pyrenean foreland basin.

Contrary to what Serra-Kiel et al. suggest, however, the magnetostratigraphic interpretation of Taberner et al. (1999) was not solely dependent on numerical ages provided by glauconite (40Ar/39Ar) and anhydrite samples (87Sr/86Sr). Our chronostratigraphic framework was based on (1) the pattern of reversals in each particular studied section, as well across the basin, determined by field mapping, correlation of marker beds, and numerical dating; (2) correlation with magnetostratigraphic information from the northern...
