OTHER IMAGES

In addition to the new bathymetric maps and 3D images that have been generated with the newly compiled bathymetric, shoreline and topographic data set, a number of other figures have also been added to the CD-Rom. These are either figures that have been generated from the same new data set, or figures that have been added because they bring additional information that may be of help when using the new bathymetry maps. 

Below are a number of thumbnail representations of the other images included on the CD-Rom..


ANIMATED 3D IMAGE OF LAKE BAIKAL. 
This animation illustrates how Lake Baikal would look in case the water would be removed step by step, in steps of 100 m. It also visualises from which water depth the three major basins would become totally separated.

TOPOGRAPHIC MAP OF THE LAKE BAIKAL REGION. 
This map is a topographic contour map in ARC System projection (WGS 1984 Ellipsoid), at a natural scale of 1:1,000,000. The original data are a product of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency in compressed ARC Digitized Raster Graphics format.

 


TOPOGRAPHIC CONTOUR MAP OF THE LAKE BAIKAL REGION. 
This map is a colored contour map in Mercator projection (WGS 1984 Ellipsoid), at a natural scale of 1:500,000 (true scale at 5300' N). Contour interval is 100 m. Contours in the lake are in metres below lake level; contours on land are in metres above sea level.

SATELLITE MAP OF THE LAKE BAIKAL REGION. 
This map is a mosaic composition of Landsat and MODIS satellite images from NASA in UTM projection (WGS 1984 Ellipsoid), at a scale of 1:500,000.
