The Tappeh Salam section, located in the vicinity of Mashhad city in the loessial piedmont of granitic hilly lands was studied. The results showed the effectiveness of magnetic susceptibility properties for the interpretation of paleopedological and paleoenvironmental conditions of loess–paleosol sequence in northeastern Iran. It should be noted that in the arid regions, to avoid misinterpretation, the effect of high amount of gypsum and carbonates must be taken into account, by minerogenic magnetic susceptibility calculation
