Abstract

After summarizing the results of Quaternary climatic fluctuations in China, AA. describe the significance of the Lanzhou loess and paleosol sequence in Quaternary studies. Five stratigraphic units are identified with at least 21 intercalated paleosols, TL, paleomagnetic and fission track dating techniques have been applied to determine the age of the loess horizons. Correlations are made with the terrace of the Yellow River and oxygen isotope curves of the Pacific deep-sea cores and the Vostok ice core isotope curves
