Nebkhas are distinctive biogeomorphological landforms prevalent in global drylands and coastal environments. They play a crucial role in supporting local biodiversity and preventing land desertification and often serve as an indicator of local environmental change. Despite their significance, the environmental factors that affect their geographical distribution and how they respond to climate change have not been fully explored. This study represents a novel application of machine learning models to quantifying the biogeomorphological niche of Nitraria nebkhas in northern China and simulating their geographical distribution under future climate change conditions. Findings underscore that climatic variables influence the growth of formative shrub species on nebkhas, whereas climate, soil and geomorphological conditions, along with their spatial configuration, determine the probability of nebkha occurrence …

Middle Pleistocene glaciations in North America

Middle Pleistocene time is assigned to Marine Isotope Stages (MIS) 19–6 and falls entirely within the Brunhes Normal Chron. Oxygen isotope excursions in marine sediment are interpreted as representing glacial/interglacial cycles because light isotopes are preferentially evaporated from the oceans and during glaciations, may be stored long-term in ice sheets. The magnitude of the marine isotope excursion is therefore interpreted as an indirect record of the volume of terrestrial ice sheets. Nevertheless, the presence, location, extent and character of Middle Pleistocene ice sheets require independent documentation and verification.In the mid-continent and the northwestern parts of North America, the sediment record of glaciation spans the Pleistocene and extends to the Pliocene in places, based on strata dated by a number of methods. Glacial deposits are being increasingly assigned to Middle Pleistocene time …

2023

Optical dating and mapping of eolian sand in the Upper Mississippi River basin provide important constraints on the timing and extent of major paleoenvironmental shifts south of the Laurentide Ice Sheet during the last deglaciation. Twenty nine optical ages from 10 sites document a major period of eolian sand activity ca. 18–14 ka on the Iowan Erosion Surface in eastern Iowa and the northern Driftless Area in west-central Wisconsin. This age range coincides with the end of accelerated mass wasting within and adjacent to the Driftless Area, sand wedge formation in the northern part of the Driftless Area, a major transition in speleothem growth in a cave in the southern part of the Driftless Area, major retreat of the Des Moines and Lake Michigan lobes, and the youngest ages of tundra-like floral remains in the study area. A regional increase in sediment availability due to a change in surface and subsurface hydrology …

Tephras are highly valuable for achieving precise chronologies and secure correlations for sedimentary sequences. Rock magnetic investigations provide a simple, rapid tool for tephra identification especially for weathered tephra, cryptotephra (hidden tephra), thin and dispersed distal tephra. But so far, the most diagnostic magnetic properties for tephra identification and for differentiation of specific tephras are still uncertain. Three laterally continuous and representative tephras/cryptotephras embedded in Serbian loess deposits provide a rare opportunity to explore application of magnetic approaches in tephrostratigraphy. Systematic rock magnetic and petrographic comparison of tephra and its host loess reveal that the characteristic magnetic mineral of the studied tephras is moderate-Ti titanomagnetite of magmatic origin, with a dominant magnetic grain size of non-interacting single domain (SD) and pseudo …

Our aim is to determine how soil hydrology influences root-zone and deep soil carbon in a loess-paleosol sequence in semiarid southwest Nebraska, USA. Our study site is characterized by large flat to gently sloping plateaus or tables with gullies incising at the table margins. Tables are underlain by thick loess, which contains buried soils characterized by substantial organic carbon (OC) and inorganic carbon (IC). Past climate changes are responsible for the formation and initial preservation of the buried soils (Marin-Spiotta et al., 2014), which formed during wetter climates and then were buried after climatic changes towards drier conditions produced more dust. We investigated the role of soil hydrology in persistence of buried soil OC and accumulation of pedogenic carbonates. We measured the soil water retention curves (SWRCs), for a 4.5 m loess-paleosol sequence, which were used to parameterize a …

The deep critical zone is often associated with fractured bedrock, but thick aeolian sediments or glacial till also form deep critical zones over large areas. The northern High Plains Aquifer (HPA) is overlain with thick aeolian sediments, which are likely to strongly influence deep critical zone flow. It is important to gain better understanding of this deep critical zone because the HPA is an important source for irrigation and HPA discharge is a key source of base flow in streams of the region. Dune fields are known recharge areas for the northern HPA, whereas regions of very thick loess deposits nearby contribute little recharge. The narrow pore size distribution of sand generally results in low plant available water (PAW) and quick gravitational drainage. There is little cropland in the dune fields; however, irrigated fields are found on low-relief sand sheets where a buried soil is present in the root zone. Pedogenic …

Thick loess of the central Great Plains, USA, preserves a detailed record of Holocene climate change, extremely thick loess accumulated during and just after the last glacial maximum, and a sequence of older loess units and paleosols. This loess sequence is only well-preserved beneath the summits of tablelands, plateau-like landforms with flat to undulating summits and steep gully-dissected marginal slopes. These loess tablelands are also a key setting for preservation of organic carbon in buried soils and for long-term storage of sediment in the form of loess. Even under tableland summits, however, at some sites interbedded or surficial sand aeolian sand interrupts the loess sequence and/or parts of the loess sequence are missing. These are interpreted as the result of downwind/upwind shifts in the boundary between thick loess and the dune fields or bedrock surfaces of sand transport that occur upwind of the …

The Tibetan Plateau (TP) is a hotspot of earth system research, and understanding its landscape and ecosystem evolution has been hampered by the lack of time‐constrained geological records. Geochronological data from 14 loess sites covering a large region in the Tibetan interior show that the TP loess, rather than accumulating during glacial periods, began aggrading at either 13.4 ± 0.4 or 9.9 ± 0.2 ka. An ecological threshold was crossed, when warmer and wetter conditions resulted in increased vegetation cover enabling dust trapping. This dust accumulation model is out of phase with that of the Chinese Loess Plateau (CLP) where high sedimentation rates occurred during the cold/dry glacial stages. The TP loess accumulation is in response to global climate change, at both orbital (glacial/interglacial) and millennial (e.g., Younger Dryas event) time scales, despite more complexity via ecological and …

Tephras are highly valuable for correlation and precise dating of Quaternary deposits. Tephras preserved in Serbian loess have potential to resolve the controversial chronologies for the Middle Pleistocene Danube loess deposits. However, identification of tephras in loess is especially difficult, as they are often mixed with loess, occur as non-visible cryptotephras or strongly altered by weathering/bioturbation, and consequently volcanic glasses are in very low concentration or even absent. In this case, rock magnetic methods are fast and most efficient. But rock magnetic investigation of tephra layer has not been systematically conducted in the European loess, and the most diagnostic and widely applicable magnetic methods for tephras still remains uncertain in loess and other sediments. A systematic review and assessment of different magnetic methods is highly demanded.

Soil hydrology provides important background for understanding the fate of organic carbon (OC) buried by geomorphic processes as well as the influence of runoff, infiltration, and plant root uptake on long‐term erosion and landscape evolution. We modeled the hydrology of a 4.5‐m loess‐paleosol sequence on an eroding tableland in the U.S. central Great Plains using Hydrus 1D, a numerical unsaturated flow model, parameterized with high resolution measurements of the soil water retention and hydraulic conductivity curves, which were distinct for the loess and paleosols. We hypothesized that (a) the connection of paleosols to modern climate depends on their burial depth, (b) paleosols in the root zone would have broader pore‐size distributions than unweathered loess, and (c) this broader pore‐size distribution increased root water uptake and made vegetation more resilient to drought, increasing the stability …

Results from soil hydrology modeling of a loess-paleosol sequence in southwestern Nebraska using Hydrus 1D suggest that organic carbon in buried soils may be preserved due to moisture limitations; incubations confirmed this carbon is vulnerable to decomposition if wetted (Szymanski, 2021). Our modeling produces a similar pattern with depth as volumetric water contents (VWC) of field samples, but most VWCs from this and past projects are drier than the model results. Long term soil moisture monitoring of nearby loess soils also suggests that our model overestimates VWCs. We believe that failure to simulate run-off may be the primary reason for this discrepancy because including vapor transport, using a more realistic hydraulic conductivity curve and altering initial conditions have not produced significantly drier results. Additionally, field observations such as large gullies incising into the loess, rills on the soil …

Nebkhas, also known as nebkha dunes or coppice dunes, are a unique biogeomorphological aeolian landform that is common in arid and semi-arid regions. They are often regarded as a signal of regional desertification and could be potential dust sources due to their relatively large content of fine sediments, but they also serve as “fertile islands” that enhance biodiversity at a micro-habitat. How the interactions between plant growth and aeolian sand deposition affect the formation and development of nebkhas has not been well documented, though. In this study, the chronology and morphological features of nebkhas in the Mu Us dune field, north-central China were studied using radionuclide (137Cs) dating and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) photogrammetric survey. The results show that the nebkhas are mainly distributed around lake basins and dry river valleys with relatively flat topography. Most nebkhas …

Loess deposits intercalated by paleosols are detailed terrestrial archives of Quaternary climate variability providing information on the global dust cycle and landscape dynamics. Their paleoclimatic significance is often explored by quantifying their mineral magnetic properties due to their sensitivity to local/regional hydroclimate variability. Detailed chronological assessment of such regional proxy records around the climatic transitions allow a better understanding of how regional records react to major global climatic transitions such as the Pleistocene-Holocene climatic transition.Logs of high-resolution magnetic susceptibility and its frequency dependence were used as paleoclimatic proxies to define the environmental transition from the last glacial loess to the current interglacial soil as reflected in nine loess-paleosol sequences across the northern hemisphere, from the Chinese Loess Plateau, the southeastern …

Sand dunes could have bistable states based on the observation that bare dunes and vegetation-stabilized dunes can coexist in the same area under the same environmental conditions. So far, more quantitative evidence on such an interesting phenomenon has remained elusive. In this study, the vegetation coverage and spatial distribution of dunes in the semi-arid Mu Us dune field, north-central China, were investigated by different remote sensing indices derived from the Landsat images using the Google Earth Engine platform, and the results were verified using the aerial images. Frequency distribution of vegetation coverage in many sub-regions (5 km × 5 km) across the dune field clearly shows two dominant peaks, one around 5% and the other around 40%, representing active and stabilized dune states, respectively. The boundaries between the patches of these two states are sharp, and have hardly shifted …

Paleosols are former topsoils that got buried by various depositional events. Paleosols can store large quantities of soil organic matter (SOM) that may persist over millennial timescales as it is protected from oxidizing conditions at or near the soil-atmosphere interface. We studied buried soil organic carbon (SOC) dynamics in the brady paleosol, a deep loess (aeolian) deposit in Nebraska, USA where climate has historically driven varying rates of loess deposition during the late Pleistocene and Holocene. Soils were sampled along the burial and erosional transects at the depths ranging from 0.2 to 5.2 m to understand the variability in physical and chemical composition of the soils in buried vs modern surface and determine the vulnerability of the SOM to addition of moisture. We added water to soil from the different transects and depths, at 60% pore space capacity in two different experimental set ups repeated wet …

Here we investigate the timing of Pleistocene-Holocene climatic transition as reflected in nine luminescence dated loess-palaeosol sequences across the northern hemisphere, from the Chinese Loess Plateau, the southeastern European loess belt and the central Great Plains, Nebraska, USA. First, logs of high-resolution magnetic susceptibility and its frequency dependence were used as palaeoclimatic proxies to define the environmental transition from the last glacial loess to the current interglacial soil. Second, the onset of increase in their values above typical loess values was used to assess the onset of, and developments during, the Pleistocene-Holocene climatic transition. The variability seen in the magnetic susceptibility records are interpreted based on high-resolution luminescence dating applied on multiple grain-sizes (4-11 µm, 63-90 µm, 90-125 µm) of quartz extracts from the same sample. In order to …

Paleosols that are formed when the topsoil gets buried by lateral distribution of soil can store large quantities of soil organic matter (SOM) that may persistent over millennial timescales due to its detachment from the disturbances at the surface. We studied buried SOM dynamics in the Brady paleosol, a deep loess (aeolian) deposit in Nebraska, USA where climate has historically driven varying rates of loess deposition during the late Pleistocene and Holocene, burying soils up to 50 m below the surface. Soils were sampled along the burial and erosional transects at the depths from 0.2 to 4.2 m to understand the variability in physical and chemical composition of the soils in buried vs modern surface.

The Nebraska Sand Hills form the largest dune field in North America (~50,000 km2), now largely stabilized by native grasses but preserving a rich geologic record of past dune activity and environmental change. This dune field developed on a particularly large undissected portion of the High Plains, with a variety of sand sources exposed nearby. The Nebraska Sand Hills are underlain by the High Plains Aquifer, which sustains a vast number of ecologically important interdune wetlands and lakes. The large barchanoid ridge and barchan dunes of this dune field resemble the active dunes of warm deserts more than the smaller stabilized dunes found elsewhere on the Great Plains. Geologic evidence indicates that the Nebraska Sand Hills alternated between activity and stability over the past 20,000 years, with multiple Holocene episodes of dune activity clearly associated with increased frequency of severe …
