Loess and Loess Geohazards in China

Yanrong Li, Jingui Zhao, Bin Li
November 27, 2017

Loess is a product of aeolian deposition during the Quaternary glaciation cycles and covers approximately 6% of the Earth’s land. The Loess Plateau of China, which is home to a population of nearly three hundred million, has the thickest and most complete loess strata, where loess geohazards occur...
