Abstract

The objectives in this work were to investigate the mineralogy and major element geochemistry of the uppermost loess layer (Malan Loess) and some topsoils along two transects to determine: 1) the significance of any mineralogical and chemical patterns and wether there are any significant differences between Malan Loess and the topsoil; 2) the relationship between mineralogy and major element chemistry of the loess and its fertility; 3) whether the distributions of heavy minerals and major elements in Malan loess support the hypothesis that the loess originated from a source area in the desert region to the north of the Loess Plateau
