The stream bottoms of alluvium are modified by loess and humic deposits, and are of course very fertile; but hardly more so than the loess of the uplands. 1 " Loess " is a fine calcareous clay, which has been wind-borne, and subsequently laid down on the margins of dry steppes and deserts.   (geology) Any sediment, dominated by silt, of eolian (wind-blown) origin(geology) loess (accumulation of wind-blown sediment).

Loess is mostly created by wind, but can also be formed by glaciers. When glaciers grind rocks to a fine powder, loess can form. Streams carry the powder to the end of the glacier. This sediment becomes loess. Loess ranges in thickness from a few centimeters to more than 91 meters ( feet). Unlike other soils, loess is pale and loosely packed. Loess. a fertile, silty soil deposited by the wind, is plentiful in this region and in a fw favored areas winter precipitation is high enough to allow for rain-fed agriculture. Vulnerable to water erosion. Pastoralist. people who raise livestock for subsistence purposes.

A thin mantle of cover‐loam over much of North‐East Essex has been recognised as consisting largely of loess. The cover‐loam represents the intermixing, to a varying degree, of a layer of loessial silt with a thin layer of underlying sand which is also of likely aeolian.
