Some Characteristics and Analysis of Forming the Conditions of Loess in Xinjiang
Teng Zhihong Department of Geology
On the basis of observation in field and the study in laboratory,the distribution the texture and the types of formation, the lithologicalcharacters and material sources of loess in Xinjiang are discussed inthis paper. According to geomorphologic unit, the loess in Xinjiangmay be divided chiefly into three types: the loess on piedmont ofalluvial fan, the loess on the river terraces and the loess on bed rockslope. Genesis of loess in Xinjiang is controled by the sources ofmaterials, the geomorphologic conditions and the climate.
