Climate change is increasing the occurrence of extreme precipitation events and causing irregular precipitation patterns. This occurs in parallel with the degradation of crop fields, and triggers the occurrence of pluvial floods and droughts on the same field. Consequently, irrigation must be adapted to the changing soil properties. Detailed spatial and temporal measurements of changes in Cited by: 1.

The evolution of concepts in the central US developed in four indefinite stages: the eras of (1) discovery and development of hypotheses, (2) conditional acceptance of the eolian origin of loess, (3) "bandwagon.

Laboratory experiments on loess with the aim of studying the mode of redeposition of silt loam have shown that turbulent rainwash generally leads to the formation of poorly layered colluvial deposits with poorly sorted individual laminae (some containing rounded clods smaller than 3 mm); the ratio between the percentage by volume of laminae composed of grains between 10 and 50 μm and the Cited by: Loess deposits of Neka, Toshan and Now Deh are situated along the northern footslopes of the Alborz Mountain range, while the Agh Band LPS is located in the so called Iranian Loess Plateau (ILP).

An alternative hypothesis, that loess originates by weathering in situ, does not explain all of its characteristics, but some aspects of this Aspects of loess and loess-derived slope deposits book theory may be necessary to account for the wide range of secondary carbonate forms almost universal in loess and the peculiar distribution of thin loess deposits in parts of Britain.

In a detailed study of a small loess-mantled watershed in the Driftless Area, Knox () showed that ~70% of the total volume of Peoria Member loess that was eroded from uplands of the basin was initially stored in footslope and valley floor deposits that accumulated in the Late Pleistocene.

and the easily erodible loess-derived soils of the region. As time progressed and farming practices remained unchanged, surface runoff increased and soil erosion accelerated. The stock market crash and the Dust Bowl drought of the early s had a profound influence on the Midwest as well as the entire nation.
