Abstract

Uslular and Gençalioğlu‐Kuşcu (2018) have written a lengthy, and highly critical, comment about McNab et al. (2018, https://doi.org/10.1002/2017GC007251) which states that our data compilation for Neogene (and Quaternary) volcanic rocks from Anatolia is selective, inconsistent, and not fit for purpose. We state for the record that our compilation is not based on analyses from the published GEOROC database. Uslular and Gençalioğlu‐Kuşcu (2018) also state that our subdivision of this database into three broad longitudinal categories is unrealistic since it does not consider the full range of different tectonic units. They conclude that our interpretation of the link between Neogene‐Quaternary volcanism and uplift of Anatolia is erroneous. We refute this rather strongly worded comment by carefully addressing the five substantive issues raised.
