... used grain-size records from four high-resolution, chronologically well-defined loess sections on the Chinese Loess Plateau to represent past EAWM intensity and its amplitudes. Our results show that the EAWM is weaker and has lower amplitudes during warm periods than during cold stages at various time...

...Guangyan Zhou; Long Li; Guoqiao Xiao; Luo Yan; D. Graham Pearson; Qingzhen Hao; Yuanbao Wu Abstract The origin and provenance of eolian sediments such as loess can potentially reveal paleo-air circulation directions that drive temporal changes in climate. The provenance of these deposits has been...

... was to let them ask us to delineate areas of importance, for example, old burial sites. There are, naturally, processes and protocols, cultural and technical, that we followed. The sites comprised a range of lithologies and soil types: one site where clay soil overlays limestone, five sites where loess...

...Yulong Cui; Junhong Hu; Jun Zheng; Gui Fu; Chong Xu Abstract Due to the unique climate and frequent human activities, the loess area in Yining County, Xinjiang, China experiences many landslides. In this study, the formation mechanisms and controlling factors of the landslides in a typical loess...

... the climate effects across the mid-Pleistocene transition. The major terrestrial records that preserve the mid-Pleistocene transition with high fidelity are best exposed in the continuous and thick accumulations of loess-paleosol sequences in Central Asia ( Head and Gibbard, 2005) . There, thicker loess...

.... A layer of possible loess in sediments in Squalicum Lake suggests a possible third and final Sumas readvance between 13,000 and 11,150 cal yr B.P., at which time a moraine was constructed ~8 km south of the border near the town of Sumas, Washington. Together, our results suggest that the concept...
