Red Clay to loess-palaeosol sequence in central North China dataset (during 3.0-2.6 Ma)
CTR :420
Key words loess-palaeosol sequence,central North China
Relevant data A continuously accumulated section (the Yanyu section) of Red Clay and loess-palaeosol sequence from the southernmost Chinese Loess Plateau was selected for this study of palaeoclimate of the late Pliocene to early Pleistocene period. Termination of the Red Clay accumulation and onset of loess deposition was coincident with the beginning of extensive Northern Hemisphere glaciation at 2.6 Ma. Field observations and compositional analyses suggest an aeolian origin for the Red Clay, much like the processes experienced by the loess-palaeosol sequence. Pedogenic analysis indicates that the late Pliocene Red Clay first experienced complete decalcification and illuviation (mechanical translocation of clays) in all horizons, including the present carbonate precipitation zones, but other chemical alterations have been rather weak and even weaker than experienced by the overlying loess-derived palaeosols.
