Characteristic of Surface Sediments of Bugul'deika Ridge of Lake Baikal
Surface sediments recovered at a depth of 450 m on Bugul’deika Ridge of Lake Baikal were investigated. The deposits were formed in relatively calm conditions of sedimentation, as indicated by the absence of turbidites in the core. Palynological spectra correspond to Late Holocene vegetation. Mineral composition of sand fraction as a whole is similar to that in the sediments of the Southern Baikal. The maximum values of magnetic susceptibility in the intervals timed to the tops of column associated with high contents of sand admixture and heavy minerals.
