Response to Comment on ''Reverse level pool routing: Comparison between a deterministic and a stochastic approach" by H. Md. Azamathulla, J. Hydrol. (2012), http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2012.09.005
This discussion is in reply to the comments made by Dr. Azamathulla (in press) on the results presented in D'Oria et al., 2012 concerning a comparison between a deterministic and a stochastic approach for reverse level pool routing. In this article we summarize and answer all the comments and we try to clarify all the highlighted reservations concerning the applicability of the inverse procedures even if they are not strictly relevant to the focus of our paper. We believe that Dr. Azamathulla has overlooked some important points already reported in the discussed paper that are crucial to explain the obtained results and we reassert here their correctness.
