Abstract

In their comment, Park & Ree have raised several points against the interpretation by Park et al., and argued that the remagnetization in the Jeongseon area was caused by the thermal effects of a Late Cretaceous pluton and/or associated short-range hydrothermal fluids, rather than by long-range fluids advocated by us. We disagree with mostpoints raised by Park & Ree and we make a case that these are invalid because of what we believe is incorrect geologic evidence. Hence, our model-that the fluids causing the chemical remagnetization might migrate through the fault system within the Ogcheon Fold Belt - is the most plausible scenario. We recognize that our model needs to be tested in a future study and we welcome new interpretations for or against our model based on reliable geologic or geophysical data.
