Resumen

Aminochronological and aminostratigraphical methods have been used to study the Quaternary a e o l i a n deposits f r om the islands located east of the Canary Archipelago (Fuerteventura and Lanzarote islands and La Graciosa , Montana Clara and Alegranza islets). T h e extent of racemisation/ epimerisation of four amino acids ( isoleucine , aspartic acid , phenylalanine and glutamic acid) was measured in land snail shells of the genus Theba. The age calculation algorithms of these amino acids h a v e b e e n determined to permit t he numerical dating of these deposits. Eight A m i n o z o n e s , e a ch defining dune/palaeosol-formation episodes, have been distinguished and dated at 4 8 . 6 ± 6 . 4, 42.5 ± 6 . 0 , 37.8 ± 4 . 6 , 29.4 ± 4 . 8 , 22.4 ± 4 . 5 , 14.9 ± 3.6, 11.0 ± 4 . 0 and 5.4 ± 1.1 ka B P , t h e first f i ve of t h em defining c y c l e s of 5 - 7 ka. The alternation of palaeosols and a e o l i a n deposits, w h i c h are related to abrupt transitions from humid to arid conditions, are t he reflection of globally induced changes in North Africa palaeoenvironmental conditions linked to the effect of African palaeomonsoons on the trade w i n d s and the Saharan Air Layer. Probably these a eolian cycles , with a recurrence neriod of 5 - 7 ka. are t he expression of multiples of the ~ 2 . 4 ka solar-cycle
