    We thank Michel [2005] for the opportunity to improve our bed load transport equation [Barry et al., 2004, equation (6)] and to resolve the dimensional complexity that he identified. However, we do not believe that the alternative bed load transport equation proposed by Michel [2005] provides either the mechanistic insight or predictive power of our transport equation.
