Loess Dissected Valley Landscape
Reference work entry
This is a loess erosion landscape consisting of small gullies cut by erosion of the loess by water. These gullies or valleys commonly form on steep loess liang and mao slopes. Typical loess dissected valleys are V-shaped, 3–6 m wide, 2–4 m deep and appear in clusters. They are the result of early-stage erosion (Fig. 31).
