Abstract

The S5 is the most prominent paleosol unit in the Chinese Loess Plateau, and is distinguished by its great thickness, dark color, and well-developed clay coatings. Previous studies led to the proposal that the S5 developed under much warmer and wetter conditions than at present, implying a climatic optimum. However, the S5 is a paleosol complex corresponding in time to a period of weak glacial-interglacial oscillations, as recorded by marine oxygen-isotope stages 15 through 13. To understand the character of this climatic interval, 2 profiles of the paleosol S5 in the Guanzhong basin were studied (grain-size, mineralogical and chemical data)
