First, we would like to highlight our appreciation of Dr. Platt's and Dr. Wright's comments and the opportunity they give us to discuss some aspects of our papers (Sacristan-Horcajada et al. 2015, 2016) improving the final state of our work.Knowledge about sedimentology of alluvial systems has had an important development in recent years, with new proposals for models in rift basins where tectonics play a predominant role (Nichols and Fisher 2007; Hartley et al. 2010; Weismann et al. 2010; Fielding et al. 2012). The differential behavior of the extensional structures during the earliest syn-rift stage (Tithonian) in the West Cameros Basin played a key role in the architecture of the various alluvial systems (Sacristan-Horcajada et al. 2015) as well as the distribution of various calcrete sequences (Sacristan-Hocajada et al. 2016). We discuss the points raised Drs. Platt and Wright in the same order they established.
