Laguna de Fuente de PiedraLake geoscience E -4.769, N 37.109
DescriptionLaguna 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.
