"A book that promises new ways of seeing a familiar Midlands landscapeâ€¦The editors invited 13 writers-a poet, a research geologist, an anthropologist, a farmer, botanist, and historians-to submit essays sharing not just their scientific knowledge about the Loess Hills, but telling about their personal connections to the landforms.".
Loess (US: / l ɛ s, ˈ l oʊ. ə s, l ʌ s /, UK: / l ɜː s /; from German Löss) is a clastic, predominantly silt-sized sediment that is formed by the accumulation of wind-blown dust. Ten percent of the Earth's land area is covered by loess or similar deposits.

They address situations in which the classical procedures do not perform well or cannot be effectively applied without undue labor. Lowess/Loess in R Note that there are actually two versions of the lowess or loess scatter-diagram smoothing approach implemented in R.
