Reply to Comment by M. Narkiewicz on “Depth-to-basement for the East European craton and Teisseyre-Tornquist Zone in Poland based on potential field data, by Mikołajczak et al., International Journal of Earth Sciences (2019) 108:547–567”

We are grateful to M. Narkiewicz for his interest in our publication (Mikołajczak et al. 2019) and giving us a chance to look at it through the eyes of a reader. We are also thankful for notification of these aspects of our work that were not sufficiently elaborated in the commented paper. We are, therefore, eager to briefly address the main points of criticism raised in the discussion article (Narkiewicz 2019).
The nature of deep basement
In response to concerns raised by M. Narkiewicz regarding the chronostratigraphic assignment of crystalline basement in the study area, we emphasise that the basement is referred to as Paleoproterozoic since by the end of that era the crust of the present-day East European Craton was already consolidated (Bogdanova et al. 2008). This cratonic basement was subsequently intruded by Mesoproterozoic AMCG plutons and minor Carboniferous intrusions (Krzemińska et al. 2017) in an intra-plate setting. However, these magmatic pulses did not...
