Jingbian area is located in Loess Plateau-Mu Us desert transitional zone, and is more sensitive to climate change. Element geochemical indicators from Sandaogou soil profile in Jingbian area were used to comprehensively analyze the chemical weathering intensity, Holocene environmental changes and driving mechanism. The results show that the chemical index of alteration and Na2O/K2O of Sandaogou soil profile reflect that it is in the primary weak chemical weathering stage; Sandaogou soil profile is formed during the Holocene 8.4-1.8 ka with an average deposition rate of 19.9 cm·ka-1; the Holocene average precipitation and temperature in Jingbian area reconstructed by chemical index of alteration are 611 mm and 11.7 ℃; Sandaogou soil profile suffers three stages of environmental changes since the Holocene, which are warming(8.4-6.8 ka), suitable(6.8-4.2 ka)and cooling(4.2-1.8 ka); the changes are consistent with global climate, and are mainly controlled by insolation.
