Development of aeolian geomorphology in China in the past 70 years
Zhibao DONG, and Ping LYU
Wind is the second largest fluid shaping the earth's landscape besides water. The aeolian landform formed by wind is widely distributed in the global arid regions, and more than 40% of the land area is affected by the aeolian process in the world. Owing to a close relationship with the human's living environmen

Spatial characteristics and variation mechanism of different soil organic carbon components in the alluvial/sedimentary zone of the Yellow River
Junhua ZHANG, Guodong LI, Yansong WANG, Lianqi ZHU, Wenliang ZHAO, and Yapeng DING
Sediment from the Yellow River is the main material source in the formation of several landform types in the lower reaches of the Yellow River. This sediment deposition changes the surface soil structure and its organic carbon content. Here, the distribution characteristics of soil organic carbon components and their i
