The sediments of the Playa Lake are sensitive indicators of local climates that any change in climate, hydrology, and sedimentary environment will cause changes in the physical and chemical properties of the sediments. These sediments create a valuable and important archive with high resolution to examine these changes in the past. One method of studying climate change during quaternary and often Holocene is the study of Sedimentology, mineralogy and sedimentary geochemistry in sedimentary cores harvested from wetlands and lakes. These studies can help to more accurately identify and re-read their past history and be used to investigate possible climate change. The Gavkhouni Playa is one of the pluvial lakes of the Plio-Quaternary depositional basins in Iran that is located in the lowlands of the Esfahan Plain, Central Iranian Plateau. Various sediments in and around Gavkhouni palya indicate the frequent alternation of formative systems during the Quaternary hot and cold phases. The history of late Pleistocene to Holocene sedimentary evolution, and paleo-geomorphology and paleogeography of the Playa were investigated in this study.
