We thank Landing et al. for their critique of our work and, based on their comments, address what we believe are the principal points of disagreement. Although their comments appear to be directed at this paper (Lowe et al., 2018), which outlines the provenance and lithotectonic record of the Potsdam Group, their comments are principally aimed at an earlier foundational paper published in the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences (Lowe et al., 2017) that outlines the stratigraphy and facies of the Potsdam Group. The comments of Landing et al. range from minor nomenclatural discrepancies to objections to our stratigraphic framework and facies models, which we address next.
