Abstract. In this paper we study arenosols developed from accumulative dunes of marine origin in coast areas and we difference them from the scarce arenosols of residual sands. These ones present different characteristics not only in their physiography, parent material, rocks contentībut also in the equivalent CaCO3 , iron, etc. It is also observed a difference in between the mineralogy of the arenosols of the north area from the ones developed in the south coast.
Key words: Arenosoles, Mallorca
