Research in the Baikal Watershed


Presented are the results from hydrochemical and microbiological investigations into Arangatui bog ecosystems on the isthmus of Svyatoi Nos Peninsula on the shores of Lake Baikal. The formation features of bog waters as a result of a rise in the lake’s water level.
