Abstract: Abstract. Magnetic remanence and bulk susceptibility measurements are reported for a 305-m eolian 1oess-red clay sequence at Lingtai, the Chinese loess Plateau. Polarity zonation defined by about 680 remanence data yields a basal age of about 7.05 Ma for the section, which represents the oldest wind-blown dust deposited continuously in north-central China during the late Cenozoic. The resultant magnetostratigraphic scheme implies a nearly linear accumulation rate (about 2.98 cm/ka) of atmospheric dust on the …
