__MORPHOMETRIC
DATA__

The
new bathymetry data produced by the project have also yielded improved
morphometric information of Lake Baikal. A selection of this new information is
presented on the CD-Rom. Images
are in **.jpg image file format **and they can thus be handled by most
software applications.

**DEPTH
**The maximum sounded depth of Lake Baikal is

The maximum sounded depth of the Central Basin is

The maximum sounded depth of the Southern Basin is

PROFILES
**Below are a number of bathymetric cross sections through Lake Baikal.
Vertical exaggeration is 100 times.
