AbstractThe Loess Plateau area, the most widely distributed region of the Loess on the earth, is mostly located in the middle reaches of the Yellow River, covering 8 latitudes (33-41 degrees N) and 14 longitudes (100-114 degrees E) with an area of 624,000 km(2). Current landform of the Loess Plateau formed due to neotectonism, rising-falling movement, fault activities on a large scale, and Loess deposition process. The Loess Plateau area located at a transitional zone from monsoon climate of the eastern China to semiarid and arid climate in the northwestern China, the Loess Plateau experiences a prominent continental monsoon climate. The Loess Plateau can be bioclimatically divided into forest, forest steppe, and steppe zones from the southeast to the northwest, while soil is both determined by climate condition and human activities. As a consequence of special landform and human activities, the Loess Plateau is one of the most severely eroded areas in the world. However, a set of soil and water conservation projects has been implemented on the Loess Plateau and obtains great ecological and economic benefits.
