About this book

Loess materials affect some environmental and climatological factors in the atmosphere and are also of immense value to mankind after accumulation on land surface where they provide the basis of productive agriculture in many continents. Loess areas are, however, also very sensitive to soil erosion and slope failure, e.g. by mudflows and landslides.
