Here, we present the results of a study of heat capacity in Southern Baikal based on the data on water temperature from 2000 to 2020, which were obtained at the buoy station near Ivanovskiy Cape. The revealed differences in trends in heat capacity changes in the upper 100 m layer and throughout the water column are associated with changes in some meteorological and hydrological factors during the study period.
