The distribution patterns of geographical systems of the geom rank in altitudinal gradient have been explored. The studies were made by using the GIS landscape map for the surroundings of Lake Baikal, and the digital map for the territory’s topography. We suggest the mathematical model of the response function of different geosystems to the influence of a complex of environmental factors, specifically the elevation in this case. On the basis of the resulting distribution curves for geom areas in altitude, we demonstrate the existence of an invariant response function, substantiate its analytical form and define the rules of its spatial variation with changes in its parameters.
