Abstract

A detailed stratigraphic division is made in the late Pleistocene loess formation of the central Loess Plateau of China by the study of newly found Q3 loess sections. Three climatic cycles are established in the area. They are represented by three alternations of aeolian loesses and paleosols. This paper reveals that the process of late Pleistocene climatic changes recorded by Chinese loess is almost the same as that recorded by the deep-sea sediments and the Antarctic ice sheet
