Abstract

This work presents the results of the study of the phosphorus concentrations in the coastal water of the southeast coast of Lake Baikal. We have revealed that in May and September, the concentrations of total phosphorus in the coastal water do not exceed the values typical of mesotrophic water bodies. In July, the concentrations of total phosphorus in the coastal water near the Slyudyanka town as well as the Maksimikha and Enkhaluk settlements increase to the values corresponding to hypertrophic water bodies.
