To understand paleoenvironment and its evolution, paleoenvironmental reconstruction is indispensable. Various climate archives containing data of several thousands of years allow conclusions about environmental conditions in prehistoric times. On the Iberian Peninsula such significant data can be found in lacustrine depositions in endorheic salt lakes. The Collaborative Research Centre 806 (CRC 806) established by the universities of Cologne, Bonn and Aachen examines the history and migration of humanity within the geoscientific and archeological project Our Way to Europe. Lacustrine core hole drilling in Spanish
endorheic salt lakes is used to gain and evaluate sedimentary data. A GIS-based reconnaissance of those basins may achieve a quality improvement of sediment cores and the consequent paleoclimatic information. The potential drilling spots are supposed to be helpful suggestions and intend to optimize future field expeditions. Result of this work are drilling spots of the Spanish salt lakes Laguna de Medina, Laguna de Hondilla, Laguna del Pilón and the artificial desiccated Laguna de la Janda.
