Between 1992 and 1995 a detailed study of3H-3He ages was conducted in Lake Baikal, the deepest and largest lake by volume on Earth, to investigate deep water renewal in its three major basins. Maximum 3H-3He ages are 14-17 years in the southern basin, 16-18 years in the central basin, and 10-11 years in the northern basin. Rates of renewal of deep water with surface water, deduced from volume-weighted mean3 H-3He ages below 250 m depth, are about 10% yr-l in the southern and central basins and 15% yr-l in the northern basin. In the southern basin the mean 3H-3He age below 250 m depth increased steadily from 9.6 years in 1992 to 11 years in 1995, indicating a slight diminution in deep water renewal during this time. Bottom water renewal by largescale advection was estimated from the mass balance of 3He in the 200 m thick bottom layer of each basin. Bottom water renewal rates in the northern basin were found to be between 80 and 150 km3 yr-l and in the central basin between 10 and 20 km3 yrl, whereas in the southern basin they were practically zero. Correlating oxygen and dissolved helium-4 concentrations with 3H-3He age aallowed us to determine the mean hypolimnetic oxygen depletion rate in the water column (4.5 nanomol L -1 yr-l), as well as mean helium fluxes from the lake bottom (2.8 x 1011 atoms m-2 s-l in the northern basin, and 1.3 x 10 11 atoms m-2 s-l in the central and southern basins). The helium isotope ratio of the terrigenic helium component injected from the lake bottom, determined from measurements of water from hydrothermal s rings in the vicinity of the lake, was found to be ~2.2xl0-7.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Imboden, Dieter M.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
