The "mean value concept" in a mono-linear regression of multi-variables is clarified. Its applications to reconstruction of the past 90-year salinity of the sea surface water in Xisha Islands and to tracing the past 80 ka paleo-geomagnetic events from the Luochuan loess 10Be record are introduced in detail, which show the significance and the potential of the "mean value concept" in geoscience research.
