Abstract

We thank Shaller (2016) for his Comment on our recent paper (Watkins et al., 2015), in which we used high-resolution image and spectral data to constrain long-distance landslide transport mechanisms in Valles Marineris, Mars. We proposed a clay lubrication transport model involving the entrainment of clay-bearing trough-floor materials based on three main lines of support: the discovery of hydrated silicates in the outer zone of Ius Labes, correlated morphostructural observations consistent with the presence of these hydrated silicates in the basal sliding zone of the landslide, and the well documented friction-reducing mechanical properties of clay minerals.

We thank Shaller for further highlighting the necessity of continued research related to long-distance transport of long-runout landslides on Mars and on Earth, and for providing testable hypotheses that can be explored by future work. We investigate many of these matters in more detail in a comprehensive manuscript on this topic currently in revision for Icarus.
