Abstract

In order to use the specific soil property, pedogenic susceptibility, as a paleoclimate recorder for the Chinese loess and paleosols, it is essential to establish that it is a property reaching near-steady state within a few thousand years, and hence one providing a snapshot of soil-forming conditions for every paleosol that has had this minimum exposure time to weathering. Here, the AA. present evidence that suggests rapid development of pedogenic susceptibility, especially on loess parent materials
