Abstract: The present work deals with the sedimentological, lithostratigraphic and paleoenvironmental study of the red (Senonian) series of the two sections Asfalou and Anmitar located in the district of Imini, Asfalou. These areas are semi-arid zone in the south of the High central Atlas-Morocco. Different analysis was performed such as a sedimentological, lithostratigraphic analysis of the facies to recognise sedimentary structures and textures encountered. Also, the collection of samples for exoscopic analysis of quartz grains was conducted, and the analysis of clay procession was done. In general, all the sedimentation was spent in a continental environment (fluvial or flooded) with some rare marine upwellings that are marked by the installation of dolomite bars.
