Round 1

Reviewer 1 Report

The study on "An integrated approach to determining the capacity of 3 ecosystems to supply ecosystem services into life cycle 4 assessment for a carbon capture system" is methodological and well complemented with relevant references. This study presents a practical proposal to understand the implication of flow and fund relation on demand and sink side which is missing in typical LCA. I would recommend publishing this manuscript after minor revision. My recommendation for authors is to improve the resolution of figures especially the ones which have lot of text involved in them.

Author Response

We have revised and thereby improved our manuscript based on your recommendations, specifically in the improved the resolutions of 4 and 5 Figures, as well as the text, involved them. 

Reviewer 2 Report

LCA is important tool as evaluating the carbon dioxide emission.  

In that sense, this manuscript has some interesting results.  

However, there are some of changes for the better manuscript.

Please check the comments.


1.figure4 and 5 at page 15, 16

It is difficult to understand the legends in the figure 4 and 5.

Could you please write bigger letters in these figure.

Author Response

We have revised and improved the Manuscript based on your comments and recommendations.  The resolutions of 4 and 5 figures were made. Also, minor changes have been incorporated which are marked in yellow.
