                         of Quaternary (Middle to Late Pleistocene/ Holocene) continental 
                         carbonates outcrops inside Pantanal Basin and its surroundings, 
                         especially in Serra da Bodoquena, Pantanal do Miranda and 
                         Corumb{\'a}/Lad{\'a}rio plateau, in the state of Mato Grosso do 
                         Sul, as well as in Serra das Araras, in the state of Mato Grosso. 
                         The aim is to understand the depositional paleoenvironments and 
                         analyse climate and tectonic influences in their genesis and 
                         evolution. The results show that the deposition of these 
                         continental carbonates started in the Middle to Late Pleistocene 
                         and have continued, with some interruptions, until the present 
                         days. Sedimentary successions were identified in the different 
                         areas, without complete correlation. Two sedimentary successions 
                         separated by an erosional surface were described in Serra da 
                         Bodoquena and Serra das Araras. In Corumb{\'a} and Pantanal do 
                         Miranda, only one succession was described. These successions were 
                         deposited in elongated lakes parallel to fault planes; small 
                         lakes, related plains and plateaus; springs related to cliffs 
                         produced by faulting; rivers conditioned by topographic variation. 
                         The climatic interpretation, without proper temporal resolution, 
                         obtained by the stable-isotope composition and stratigraphic 
                         interpretation, indicates alternation of dry and wet periods. The 
                         Neoproterozoic faults with their neotectonics and the subsidence 
                         of the Pantanal Basin, are the major control for carbonated water 
                         flow and development of depositional areas, gradually turning 
                         plateaus into slight tilted areas, allowing the evolution of 
                         depositional systems from lakes to rivers.",
