Presented are the results from investigating Baikal’s water samples collected in July of 2009 for two profiles in Middle Baikal. Mean concentrations of 34 elements were obtained by the ICP-MS method with high resolution instrument ELEMENT-2, and Zn, Cu, Fe, Al, Pb and Mn contents were quantified. According to the occurrence scale, the contents of elements in Baikal’s water approach the mean values for the World’s fresh surface waters. Relatively high Mo, U and Sr concentrations characterize the geochemical background in the lake’s region.
