Laguna de Fuente de Piedra, is a shallow saline lake (0.7 m mean depth). The basin has evolved by dissolution-induced subsidence in relation to the local lithology, which is mainly composed of evaporitic formations. As an endorheic basin with low water depth this setting is hydro-sensitive and is supposed to show quick responses to variability in the water balance.


  • Coring campaign (Campillos area) (2013)

    Percussion drilling was performed along the shore with max. core recovery of 14 m and by Russian Coring a max. core of 1.5 m has been recovered from the lake centre.
