An erosional hiatus in Chinese loess sequences revealed by closely spaced optical dating
Chinese loess deposits are some of the best continental records of palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental changes in the late Cenozoic. Many investigations have shown that the long-time climateExpand
Multiphase timing of hominin occupations and the paleoenvironment in Luonan Basin, Central China
Abstract Thousands of Paleolithic artifacts have been recovered from Paleolithic sites in the Luonan Basin, in the upper South Luohe River of central China. Their discovery suggests that the basinExpand
TT-OSL and post-IR IRSL dating of the Dali Man site in central China
Abstract Showing features associated with archaic Homo sapiens and evolved Homo erectus , the Dali skull is a key fossil for understanding human evolution in China. Various dating methods such asExpand
Early human settlements in the southern Qinling Mountains, central China
Abstract China is a key area of early human settlement in East Asia, with numerous Paleolithic localities indicating an early Pleistocene presence of hominins in northern and southern China.Expand
Implication of Boron Isotope Geochemistry for the Pedogenic Environments in Loess and Paleosol Sequences of Central China
Abstract We investigated the boron isotopic composition in loess–paleosol sequences in five different profiles in the Chinese Loess Plateau. Three possible boron sources are identified: atmosphericExpand
Biodiversity Clearing-House Mechanism in China: present status and future needs
China is one of the 'megadiversity' countries of the world, and is therefore rich in biodiversity information. The decision making on biodiversity conservation and sustainable utilization demandsExpand
Ages for hominin occupation in Lushi Basin, middle of South Luo River, central China.
Results indicate that the archaeological site dates from 600ka to 620ka, reinforcing the view that Homo erectus had occupied a large area of eastern Asia by 620ka and providing important data for understanding the behavior and stone tool technology of early Chinese hominins. Expand
Newly discovered Palaeolithic artefacts from loess deposits and their ages in Lantian, central China
Eight new Palaeolithic open-air sites were identified and 770 stone artefacts were collected from 2009 to 2011 in the Lantian area of the Bahe River valley, central China. Because the famous HomoExpand
Ages of Liangshan Paleolithic sites in Hanzhong Basin, central China
Thermally transferred optically stimulated luminescence (TT-OSL) dating extends the age range beyond current limits of OSL dating in Chinese loess. In this study, we use a single-aliquotExpand
TT-OSL dating of Longyadong Middle Paleolithic site and paleoenvironmental implications for hominin occupation in Luonan Basin (central China)
Abstract Dating middle Pleistocene hominin occupations alongside the reconstruction of paleoenvironments in China between 700 and 100 ka has always been a challenging task. In this paper, we reportExpand
