Abstract

Results of observations and detailed profile studies of the distribution and compositions of loess and loess-like aeolian sediments in selected mountain areas of Central Asia are described. The accumulation of loess deposits in Central Asia is restricted to areas with steppe vegetation, low surface-wind speeds and a low percentage of surface sand. SEM-analyses of quartz-grain surfaces show aeolian transport and frost weathering in these cold-arid mountain environments. In several samples it is possible to determine which process (aeolian or cryogenic) was last to occur
