Abstract

In Northern Iran, loess is found in different geomorphological settings along a climatic gradient ranging from subhumid to semiarid conditions. Loess-paleosol sequences were investigated in detail in three key sections located on the northern foothills of Alborz mountains and in the less hills north of Gonbad-e Kavus. The loess-paleosol sequences indicate pronounced climate changes from dry and cool to moist and warm conditions with loess deposition and soil formation, respectively. They are excellent terrestrial archives of Quaternary climate and environment change in Northern Iran. - (IfL)
