摘要The loess deposits surrounding the high mountainous regions of Central Asia play an important role in understanding environmental changes in Eurasia on orbital and sub-orbital timescales. However, problems with dating Central Asian loess have limited the interpretation of climatic and environmental data, especially on sub-orbital timescales. We selected a controversial loess section, Zeketai (ZKT, with a thickness of 23 m), in the Yili basin in Xinjiang Province in western China, to establish a detailed and systematic Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) chronology. Quartz grains of 38-63 mu m were isolated from 15 samples and the single-aliquot regenerative-dose (SAR) protocol was employed for D-e determination. OSL ages are in stratigraphic order and range from 13.8 +/- 1 to 72 +/- 6 ka, suggesting continuous loess accumulation during the last glaciation. We compared these dating results with that of the previously published fine-grain sized quartz (4-11 mu m) using simplified multiple aliquot regenerative-dose (SMAR) protocol, and with the previous published radiocarbon dating (C-14) ages on snail shells. With the exception of three young samples from the upper 6 m of the section, the SMAR dating results are basically consistent with the results using the SAR protocol. Both the SMAR and SAR OSL ages are consistently older than the C-14 ages, and the radiocarbon date results should be used with caution since they appear to have been underestimated.
