Tiegs et al.1 highlight the significance and relevance of the findings of Comer-Warner et al.2 on greenhouse-gas emissions from streambed sediments but raise questions about some aspects of the experimental design. We support their call for more detailed field and laboratory-based studies on this subject. However, we believe that their concerns relate to uncertainties and limitations in the experimental design that were discussed explicitly in the original paper (and accompanying transparent peer review process—available online), or represent criticisms related to highly improbable minor anomalies that may unnecessarily dismiss experimental results as discussed below.
