Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

Figure 11 is vague (incomprehensible)  and should be redraw.

Many relevant references are missed and should be added.

Financial aspects of some MAR are not explained well enough.

Author Response

Dear reviewer 1, good morning

Thank you very much for your hard work and help to improve our manuscript.

The points you remark will be improved (fig. 11, and references). Regarding the economic study, unfortunately we do not dispose of most of the figures necessary for the provided cases, but we´ll dive in the references to find some more.

Hope next version will satisfy you.

Thank again for your kind effort

 

Reviewer 2 Report

The paper describes and analyze the advantage and drawbacks of MAR techniques in coping climate change effects. Some actions and infrastructure are taken in consideration within Spain territory. The work is well written in a good English and offers a complete picture of the possible MAR. On the other side I think introduction is too reductive, is important to offer an overview of literature study that assess the various effect of climate change in the same region and in other country.

Here some suggestions:

https://doi.org/10.3390/w11071502; https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2016.07.005 in Italy

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2018.03.300 Thailand

https://doi.org/10.1007/s12665-016-5531-7 Spain

 

Furthermore, a cross comparison with similar MAR in other country (if present) for the assessment of possible differences in the utilization and results is mandatory in discussions.

Author Response

Dear reviewer 2, greetings!

Thank you very much for your kind effort, very appreciated

We fully agree with the aspects you have detected as weak (comparison with other countries, some modern references and reductive introduction) may be improved. We´ll work hard on it. It is also foreseen to count on a professional editing service before final submission.

Thank you very much again, you have been very kind proposing some references. We´ll do our best to hold the Journal´s standar

Best regards
