Global cooling in the Cenozoic, leading to the growth of large continental ice sheets in both hemispheres, may have been
caused by the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau and the positive feedbacks initiated by it. However, the details remain to be
clarified. An ideal place to study detailed sedimentary and climatic processes associated with Tibetan uplift is the Chinese Loess
Plateau (CLP), which is immediately adjacent to northeastern Tibet. Here we review recent progresses in correlating the magnetic
susceptibility record of the eolian sequences on the CLP with the benthic oxygen isotope records over the past 6 Myr. Magnetic
susceptibility of the eolian sequences on the CLP and the benthic oxygen isotope reflect intensity of the East Asian summer
monsoon (EASM) and global ice volume, respectively. We found a good correlation between the magnetic susceptibility record
and the benthic oxygen isotope record in the past 6 Myr except during 4.5-2.7 Ma. We attributed this lack of correlation between
these two records at the interval to closure of the Panama Seaway and uplift of the Tibetan Plateau. We then present new results
about correlation patterns between the magnetic grain size records and the benthic oxygen isotope records over the past 6 Myr.
We demonstrate that contrasting/comparing magnetic grain size proxy records from Chinese eolian sediments has the potentials
of resolving both the paleo-rainfall and paleo-temperature history of the CLP region.
