This Review contains major "Loess"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.
- Loess is a highly erosion -prone soil that is susceptible to the forces of wind and water.
- Loess is the name for the silty soil that has been deposited by wind storms on the plateau over the ages.
- Loess is a yellowish soil blown in from the Inner Mongolian deserts.
- LOESS is one of many modern modeling methods that build on classical methods, such as linear and nonlinear least squares regression.
- LOESS is also prone to the effects of outliers in the data set, like other least squares methods.
- Loess: Very fine-grained sediments deposited by wind action.
- Technical Abstract: Nowhere in the world is soil erosion as serious as in the Loess Plateau region of China.
- These methods use linear least squares fitting, and a first-degree polynomial (lowess) or a second-degree polynomial (loess).
- The LOESS fit is complete after regression function values have been computed for each of the n data points.
- Glacial outwash during the Pleistocene produced huge volumes of wind-blown silt called loess.
- Hungary has several areas that are covered by loess.
- In the south occur patches of loess on which fertile brown- and black-earth soils have developed.
- The loess or wind-blown dust over that tundra, settled in and around the Rhine Valley, contributing to its current agricultural usefulness.
- Thus, the intercalation of snow during sedimentation of sand and loess does not in itself induce a laminated structure.
- Soil type: Marshall and Shelby soils, highly variable with slopes from 2 to 15 per cent, composed of loess and glacial till.
- At the retreat of the glaciers, wind blown powdered rock known as loess was deposited over the whole county, forming thin layers under a meter thick.
- Earthy parent material accumulated through wind action; commonly refers to sandy material in dunes or to loess in blankets on the surface.
- Their parent material is generally limestone, loess, or wind-blown sand.
- In these areas, beneath the surface deposit of loess is a layer of limestone residuum, underlain by bedrock.
- Sometimes there is complete absence of layers in rocks such as Loess.
- Primary sedimentary structures in loess are subtle, so the true origin of this sediment was for a very long time unclear.
- The sediment originates primarily from water erosion in the Loess Plateau region of northwest China.
- Reg. on the north.Two-thirds of the province is composed of plateau, part of the loess plateau.
- In loess deposits, the presence of T. geyeri shells has been reported since the early Pleistocene [ 14].
- Such deposits are often found along riverbeds, beaches, dunes, and areas where windblown silt (loess) and sand have accumulated.
- The North China Plain, the largest flat lowland area in China, consists of fertile soils derived from loess.
- Much loess found in the Mississippi Valley, China, and Europe is believed to have been deposited during the Pleistocene Epoch.
- To the south is Loess Plateau, the third largest plateau in China, covering 600,000 square kilometers (308,881 square miles).
- It flows between the Ordos and Gobi Deserts, and then south through steep valleys of yellow loamy soil (loess) between Shanxi and Shaanxi provinces.
- The Yellow River, which gets its muddy yellow color from the loess, runs through the northwestern part of the prefecture.
- The Yellow River is notable for the large amount of silt it carries—1.6 billion tons annually at the point where it descends from the Loess Plateau.
- Where developed on loess (as in Shaanxi, Shanxi, and Henan provinces), the brown soils are fertile, but they are also subject to heavy erosion.
- The Loess Plateau and its dusty soil cover almost all of Shanxi, Shaanxi, and Gansu provinces and parts of others.
- LOESS combines much of the simplicity of linear least squares regression with the flexibility of nonlinear regression.
- Because it is so computationally intensive, LOESS would have been practically impossible to use in the era when least squares regression was being developed.
- Most recently wind blown soil, called loess, from the glaciers was deposited on top of the lava flows.
- The soil from Normandy has formed in loess and is regarded as susceptible to crusting and highly erodible.
- Loess field in Germany Surface-water- gley developed in glacial till, Northern Ireland For other uses, see Soil (disambiguation).
- But it is also highly erodible by water or wind, and soils underlain by loess tend to be excessively drained (droughty).
- Silvaner likes marl soils mixed with limestone, loess, loam, and soils of volcanic origin.
- The early Chinese developed agriculture on the Loess Plateau because these soils were fertile, porous and easy to work.
- The thickest known deposit of loess, 335 meters, is on the Loess Plateau in China.
- The moraine landscape of northern Poland contains soils made up mostly of sand or loam, while the ice-age river valleys of the south often contain loess.
- The Huabei Pingyuan (North China Plain), the largest flat lowland area in China, consists of fertile soils derived from loess.
