Reply to: Bodge, K. R., 1997. Discussion of: Young, R.S., Pilkey, O.H., Bush, D.M., and Thieler, E.R., 1995. A Discussion of the Generalized Model for Simulating Shoreline Change (GENESIS). Journal of Coastal Research, 11 (3), 875-886.

We are pleased that Bodge does not dispute any of our observations, discussion, or conclusions regarding the limitations on the use of the GENESIS shore line change model, or deterministic, numerical models in general. His criticisms focus primarily on the relevance of the paper, and he suggests that we have offered "neither discussion nor contribution to the science."
