Abstract: The Authors appreciate the discussion and thank the Discussers for the extended validation of the Lagrangian drifter through a comparison of measured surface roughness with predictions using the analytical model for stationary gravity-capillary waves by Dolcetti and García Nava (2019). Moreover, the Discussers evaluated the experimental conditions where the drifter methodology might fail due to sensor limitations and the physical size of the instrument. These two limitations represent the lower and upper limits of detection for surface roughness measurements using the drifter.
