Abstract

In this study, 32 loess-paleosol profiles of the last glacial and interglacial periods were measured for magnetic susceptibility in order to investigate the dust transport pathways of dust input to the Loess Plateau. Because sedimentation rates decrease downwind from the dust source, the spatial distribution of dust sedimentation rates shows that northwest and west winds were the 2 most important agents for transport of dust to the Loess Plateau during the last glacial cycle
