First of all we would like to thank Dr. Shanmugam for his interest in our study of transport mechanisms of sand in deep-marine environments (Breien et al. 2010). In order to answer the remarks of Shanmugam, we here provide some more details around the experiments, and we specify the intention of the study.

The main objective of the experiments presented in our paper was to study transportation and depositional processes in sand-rich slurries run in water, and how these mechanisms respond to changing sand/clay ratios. We find some of the comments of Shanmugam (2011) to be more concentrated...
