Abstract

In response to Smalley and Antonia's comment, we agree that our statement that closer-to-zero velocity-velocity-increment correlation for larger turbulence intensity values cannot be taken as a measure of homogeneity. We also explain that, although not aware that the velocity-velocity-increment correlation cannot be zero at finite r1, we concentrated most of our analysis on its tendency towards zero with decreasing r1, since this limit is well known for homogeneous turbulence.
