Discovery of ice wedge and sand wedge networks in Inner Mongolia and Shanxi Province and their environmental significance / Zhijiu Cui, Liang Zhao, J. Vandenberghe, Wei Zhang.

Title: Discovery of ice wedge and sand wedge networks in Inner Mongolia and Shanxi Province and their environmental significance / Zhijiu Cui, Liang Zhao, J. Vandenberghe, Wei Zhang.
Author(s): Cui, Zhijiu.
Zhao, Liang.
Vandenberghe, J.
Zhang, Wei.
Date: 2002.
Language: Chinese.
In: Journal of Glaciology and Geocryology. (2002.), Vol. 24(6) (2002)
Abstract: Presents detailed descriptions of periglacial phenomena such as ice wedges and sand wedges in Datong, Shanxi Province, Dongsheng and Weshenqi of Inner Mongolia. Describes how these can be used to reconstruct past conditions of temperature and humidity. Identifies southern permafrost boundary during Last Glacial Maximum, stretching from Zhongning, Jingbian, Yulin, Datong, northern Beijing to Bohai sea. Establishes four periglacial stages between 33 ka BP and 8 ka BP, during which annual mean temperatures were typically 10 °C lower than present. Studies sand in wedges using grain analysis and SEM, concluding sands were not modified and transported by high winds during these cold periods.
