Abstract/Summary

Alicja M. Lacinska and Michael T. Styles reply: We appreciate the comment by C. R. M. Butt on the publication by Lacinska & Styles (2013) on the silicified serpentinites described from the Hajar Mountains in the United Arab Emirates. This comment is based on his very extensive knowledge of laterites and regoliths from ancient shield areas around the world; the degree to which this knowledge is directly applicable to the rocks formed at the margins of a recently uplifted mountain range, as described in the original paper, is debatable.
