Relevant data Sun, Y., X. Wang, Q. Liu, and S.C. Clemens. 2010. Impacts of post-depositional processes on rapid monsoon signals recorded by the last glacial loess deposits of northern China. Earth and Planetary Science Letters, Vol. 289, pp. 171-179 doi:10.1016/j.epsl.2009.10.038
Data shows that
Grain size and magnetic susceptibility measurements from three last glacial loess-paleosol sequences in the western portion of the Chinese Loess Plateau. The sections are located along a northwest-southeast transect: Jingyuan (36°21'N, 104°37'E), Xifeng (35°47'N, 107°36'E), and Weinan (34°21'N, 109°31'E). Powder samples were collected at 2-cm intervals for the Jingyuan section and 5-cm intervals from the Xifeng and Weinan Sections for grain size and magnetic susceptibility analyses. Age model for the Jingyuan section derived from Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) measurements (Table 1). Age models of the Xifeng and Weinan sections are constructed by mapping to the Jingyuan OSL chronology with seven tie points constrained by comparison of loess-paleosol stratigraphy and magnetic susceptibility variations.
