Abstract

The origins of the magnetic susceptibility variations of the Chinese loess and paleosols are explored by scanning and transmission electron microscopy of magnetic extracts, and by magnetic modeling of magnetic hysteresis data, to provide quantified estimates of the major magnetic components. The AA. identif{ pedngmnic formation of magnetite as the major contributor to the loess magnetic record. Matching this record against other paleoclimatic records, they find an high correlation with the standard [18]O record. The Chinese loess sequences record a very high resolution magnetic stratigraphy directly related to changing climate
