A transect was projected in the northwest Chinese Loess Plateau to observe spatial changes in sedimentological characteristics of aeolian deposits during the Last Glacial Period. A linear correlation model of sand content and distance was obtained, which was similar to the east of the Chinese Loess Plateau. According to this model, and on the basis of optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating from Binggou section, a detailed and quantificational expansion and contraction for the Tengger Desert was established
