We thank Mak et al. (2014) for their comments about the modified Euclidean distance (MDE) component of the Euclidean distance‐based ranking (EDR) method. The MDE component considers the discrete occurrence probabilities of absolute differences between the logarithms of observed data (a) and a range of ground‐motion estimates (yj, j=1,…,N) computed from a ground‐motion prediction equation (GMPE). The logarithms of ground‐motion estimates (yj), as well as the differences between the logarithms of observed data and ground‐motion estimates (dj=ayj), are assumed to be...
