Laguna de la Janda

Created at 14.12.2016


The 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.
