Directional Winds in Holocene Create Unique Landforms and Large-Scale Dusty Haze days in the East of China

Author(s): Y Ding, Hw Lu

Scientists have divided China into three stages from the West, with high altitudes 8,000 meters above sea level, to the East, under 500. The directional wind from West to East not only creates unique landforms such as continent tablemount, boat-shaped Yardang, and layer-fissured granite with geo-tourist value but also blows soils and dust to make a thick dust hood in the East, making it difficult for pollutants, car exhaust, and industrial gases to dissipate. Eastern China has become the most notorious worldwide with too many dust and haze days. The article points out that rock fragments and soils will eventually migrate to the East by directional winds and rivers, which is inevitable, but keeping moisture in the surface soil in the arid areas of the West will alleviate affections of dust and haze days for the East. Canada is one of the countries in the world naturally preserving its beauty by enacting laws that prohibit biodegradable leaves, crops, and branches from being garbage. Biodegradation is a simple way to improve the environment, and every Chinese person should learn and take action.
