Abstract. A Pliocene alluvial fan sequence of soils and sediments with 24 fossil soils in the northeastern part of the Granada Basin was investigated. The reddish brown to red soils and the (soil-)sediments substantiate a multiple alternation of sedimentation and (differently intensive) soil formation. Accumulation took place during dry and morphodynamic active periods without vegetation cover and soil formation during wet and morphodynamic stable periods with vegetation. Hence a high number of climatic changes has to he postulated to this - still not defined – part of the Pliocene.
