Story


  • 'Danxia landform' appears at Nanjing's stone pit after battered by wind and rain (2019-03-14)
  • The Danxia landform "consist of a red bed characterized by steep cliffs". It is a unique type of petrographic geomorphology found in China. Danxia landform is formed from red-coloured sandstones and conglomerates of largely Cretaceous age. The landforms look very much like karst topography that forms in areas underlain by limestones, but since the rocks that form danxia are sandstones and conglomerates, they have been called "pseudo-karst" landforms.    Photo by Imaginechina
