Laguna de la JandaOpen Air geoscience E -5.833, N 36.249
DescriptionThe La Janda basin in southern Spain is a near-shore geo-bio-archive with a variable Quaternary depositional history. In fall 2016 about 170 m sedimentary cores have been recovered from the La Janda Basin and a maximum core length of more than 30 m has been achieved. The deposits vary from shallow marine, lacustrine, palustrine, and terrestrial as the lake was drained in the 1930's. Nowadays the area is of intense agricultural usage.
Drilling campaign La Janda fall 2016 (2016)Together with a commercial drilling team, the colleagues from the Spanish Geological Survey (IGME), we've drilled 170 m sedimentary cores by percussion drilling at different locations.
