Abstract

We disagree with several of the arguments cited by Jackson et al. in support of their view that "the inference of wide-spread aseismic uplift in southern California is not justified" (1). Specifically, the striking correlation shown in figure 1 of Jackson et al. (1) is an artifact of the construction, the rod calibration data are atypical, the cited regression techniques are of doubtful value, and the geologically and geodetically determined uplift rates are inappropriately compared.
