This work describes both a pedological and geomorphological relation of the Batoque river hydrographical sub-basin, Hidrolândia/CE, located in Hidrolândia, Ceará.In order to have this paper developed, practical and conceptual studies were initially considered through a systemic approach and, soon after, a fieldwork followed by another stage of analysis of geomorphological elements based on the relief and natural resources dynamism in the pursuit of a thorough diagnosis settlement regarding pedological aspects in that area. With regard to the collected results, it is understood that the geomorphological subdivisions identified in that sub-basin are meaningful when compared to the semi-arid reality. The established quadrant to this research comprises three geomorphological units represented, respectively, by pediplains (Sertaneja Depression), the Batoque river alluvial plain and inselbergs in addition to four types of soils throughout its extension, namely Planosols, Fluvic Neosols, Litholic Neosols and Luvisols. As an overview of the final considerations, it is possible to be affirmed that the characteristics of this research encompass specificities worthy of a deeper study about thearea dynamism.
