Abstract

By studying the accumulation rate of loess, which reflects past dust flux, the AA. develop a proxy index of wind intensity for the Late Pleistocene stratigraphy units S1, L1, and S0 at the well-known Luochuan loess-paleosol locality. They also have correlated the results with other paleoclimatic indices, such as the CaCo3 content and magnetic susceptibility, thereby relating the evolution of the wind field to general paleoclimatic history
