  • 7. <ul><li>If you want to know how large Lake Baikal is you should imagine that 387 years of constant work is needed for the Angara river to dry its bowl. It’s certainly in case not a litre of water gets into or evaropates from the surface. </li></ul>
  • 8. <ul><li>Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world, it’s without a doubt. There are 30 islands on Lake Baikal, the largest one is the island of Olkhon. </li></ul>

  • 12. <ul><li>In the spring the transparency of Baikal water is 40 m. It can be explained by the fact that due to the activity of living organisms dwelling there, the water in the lake is mineral and close to distilled. </li></ul>
  • 13. <ul><li>The volume of water in Lake Baikal is about 23000 </li></ul><ul><li>that makes 20% of the world and 90% of Russian supplies of fresh water. </li></ul>
