摘要：In his comment on our paper about the hyperpycnites in the Triassic Yanchang Formation, G. Shanmugam puts forward that hyperpycnites do not exist. Consequently, he considers our interpretation that hyperpycnal flows are an important depositional process in the Yanchang Formation to be invalid. We unravel his arguments and demonstrate that evidence supports our assertion that hyperpycnal flows were an important sedimentary process in the lake in which the Yanchang Formation accumulated. Moreover, we provide proof from modern observations that hyperpycnal flows do exist in lakes.
