Abstract

To know how intensely and extensively the monsoon climate in East China affects the geomorphic processes, it is necessary to trace it back to the evolution history of the East Asia monsoon (non-monsoon stage, paleo-monsoon stage, East Asia monsoon stage). The following processes are very active : soil erosion, karstification, mudflow and freeze-thaw processes, eolian deposition. The role of the monsoon climate on the geomorphic processes during the Quarternary was similar to the present one. But there is a much more distinct contrast between the stronger summer monsoon in the interglacial period and the stronger winter monsoon in the ice ages
