AbstractThe LIMNOCLIBER project represents a multidisciplinary, international effort to recover, for the first time, long paleoenvironmental and paleoclimate records from relatively deep lakes in Spain. New records from the Iberian Peninsula during the last decade have changed our views on Holocene history from a generally benign climate punctuated by dry mid Holocene period and an amelioration afterwards, to a complex fluctuation of arid and humid periods. Lateglacial reconstructions have also shown large variability and a multifaceted regional pattern in the Iberian Peninsula. The fact that the maximum extent of mountain glaciers occurred much earlier than the global LGM, also underlines the differences in timing of the main climatic events in Southwestern Europe. To resolve the contradictory interpretations of available records and to reconstruct the effective moisture history of the region since the Last Global Glacial Maximum (LGM), long, high resolution, well-dated records from hydrologically-sensitive regions in Spain are needed. Although deep lakes are not common in Spain, numerous, relatively deep (up to 20 m), karstic lakes with carbonate-rich sediments occur in the Iberian Range and the Pyrenees, and deep terminal-moraine lakes occur in the mountains of northern and western Spain.
