The relative abundances of geochemical elements determined by XRF in the near-surface loess (58 samples), topsoil type-I (17 samples), topsoil type-II (14 samples) and modern riverbed sediments (5 samples). Furthermore, also including the sand content in different types of topsoil from the Ili Valley (115 samples). All data is presented in tables within the manuscript.
