Pingdingshan region has experienced three obvious tectonic movements in the geologic history: the Indosinian movement during the Triassic period, the Yanshan movement during the Mesozoic period, and the Himalayan movement during the Neozoic period.
Geology: The studied area is characterized by an old Precambrian foundation, consisting of crystalline schists and a Palaeozoic, Mesozoic and Neozoic sedimentary superstructure, above which there is a thin cover of more recent quaternary formations, represented by loess clays where the waters coming from rainfall or snowmelt deeply infiltrate (Tufescu, 1977).
The Neozoic sediments are covered with "Fratesti Strata" of Saint--Prestian age, loess and by loess deposits of average-high Pleistocene age.
