Quantification of Loess Landforms from Three-Dimensional Landscape Pattern Perspective by Using DEMs
In this research, several typical loess landform areas in the Chinese Loess Plateau were selected, and the object-oriented image analysis (OBIA) method was employed to identify the basic loEss landform types and results show that the OBIA method achieved satisfying classification results with an overall accuracy.
Failure mechanisms and risk mitigation of check dams on the Chinese Loess Plateau: A case study at the Gutun Gully
Loess is long-term aeolian dust deposition, characterized by loose structure, concentrated participle distribution and unstable mineral composition, and thus easy to cause extensive collapsibility
Permeability and Groundwater Enrichment Characteristics of the Loess-Paleosol Sequence in the Southern Chinese Loess Plateau
To determine the permeability characteristics and the groundwater enrichment conditions of loess and paleosol layers, this article systematically investigated the permeability, magnetic
Post-failure evolution analysis of an irrigation-induced loess landslide using multiple remote sensing approaches integrated with time-lapse ERT imaging: lessons from Heifangtai, China
The Heifangtai terrace, in Northwest China, is a typical area where loess landslides have been induced by agricultural irrigation, and many of the landslides are prone to reactivation. However, the
Characteristics of discontinuities in Heifangtai landslide area in Gansu, China
Loesses are widely distributed all over the world, especially in China. Meanwhile, long-term agricultural irrigation and extreme climate changes have led to frequent geological disasters in the
Evaluation of groundwater effects on tunnel engineering in loess
Tunnels are commonly constructed in loess with a high water content or saturation degree, which can lead to large ground deformation, structural cracking, and even tunnel collapse during
Investigation of the cumulative influence of infiltration on the slope stability with a thick unsaturated zone
Rainfall-induced shallow landslides (i.e., the depth of the failure surface is less than 5.0 m) have been widely investigated in the literature. However, the relationship between water infiltration


Loess Deposit and Loess Landslides on the Chinese Loess Plateau
Chinese Loess is a wind origin deposit which records the continuous Quaternary history. In the past 30 years, the loess stratigraphy has achieved a great advantage that the absolute age and the
Distribution and genetic types of loess landslides in China
Research on Characteristics of Cracks and Fissures of Loess and Their Distribution in Loess Plateau of China
By much field investigation and research,we find there are many different types of cracks and fissures in loess and they form cracks and fissures network.These cracks and fissures are structure
Research on loess flow-slides induced by rainfall in July 2013 in Yan’an, NW China
Abstract The Yan’an area, located on the Loess Plateau in Northern Shaanxi Province, China, experienced heavy and prolonged rainfall in July 2013, which induced 8,135 slope failures (loess landslides
