The first studies on what are now referred to as Danxia landforms were conducted at Mount Danxia near Shaoguan , China. In the 1920s and 1930s Chinese geologists made an effort to learn more about these interesting geomorphic structures. [2] Danxia landforms are made up uplifted continental crust that has been faulted and eroded, exposing large scarps of layered rock, red in color. [3]
