The plain of North China
It can be found in big pools and ‘lakes.’ Because there is no room for drainage. This results in marshes and shallow, reed-filled vakes, which are beneficial to ching and weaving, as well as migratory birds, fish, and snails. Temperatures can be high in the winter and summer, and dust storms are typical. One of the cradles of Chinese civilization was the North China Plain. It was here that China’s first agricultural civilizations and kingdoms arose. The North China Plain is still a land of dispersed agricultural villages today.
The loess plateau in china
The loess plateau is made up of wind-blown alluvium (dust) that has accumulated to depths of over 1000 meters in certain areas. The physical setting and position of the loess plateau resulted in two cultural patterns. Economically, the loess plateau has been dominated by trade and commercial cities that have prospered, such as Xian and Lanzhou, which are trade centers resulting from a revitalized economy in Xinjiang and the former Soviet Union or Central Asia.
