Several thick last glacial loess sequences in the western part of the Chinese Loess Plateau and an eolian-colluvial sequence in the central Mongolian plateau are used to understand how the summer and winter monsoons responded to global forcing factors during marine isotope stages (MIS) 4 and 3. The magnetic susceptibility data are compared with other climatic proxy data to improve the well-publicized reconstruction of the past monsoons. The improved reconstruction is then used to see whether or not the two monsoons have been responding to the same global forcing factors at the same rates
