The Collaborative Research Centre 806 established by the universities of Cologne, Bonn and Aachen reconstructs climatic conditions on the Iberian Peninsula in the quaternary. Lake sediments are especially useful for these reconstructions because of their high-resolution, interruption-free record of the palaeoenvironment. This thesis therefore examines the lithological and geochemical composition of lake sediments from Laguna Hondilla and Laguna de la Paja, including sedimentological analysis as well as measurements of magnetic susceptibility and X-ray fluorescence. The evaluated results from Laguna de la Paja from magnetic susceptibility and from potassium, titan, vanadium, rubidium and calcium show chronological patterns with warm phases adjoined by gradual cooling, which is in turn followed by an abrupt increase in temperature and the repetition of this pattern. The results
of Laguna Hondilla do not allow conclusions about the palaeoclimatic conditions.
