Interpretive Summary: This work is a closure to a discussion of "Distributions of Velocity, Turbulence, and Suspended Sediment over Low-Relief Antidunes." The discussion pointed out that contributions from at least two other workers in the field of vertical suspended sediment distribution were not included in the paper. In the closure, data collected by Wren et al., and a modification of the classical Rouse Equation proposed by Wren et al., were used to show that the original paper by Wren et al. was correct and that the additional equations from other authors did not improve the curves fit to the data of Wren et al.
