Abstract

The Loess Plateau-Northeastern Tibetan Plateau in China is famous for its deep and continuous distributed loess, in which soils (developed from loess) vary gradually with different biological climates changing from subhumid to arid, which provide a natural proving ground for study the coupling of loess-paleosol and climatic changes quantitatively. 32 sections were sampled for measuring chemical element contents, clay content and 60 sections were sampled for carbonate analysis to establish transfer functions between pedogenesis and climate. Finally, the AA. estimated the paleoclimate (P/T) in the region with transfer functions. Discussion of the results
