The ionic composition of water from four South Baikal tributaries (Utulik, Solzan, Khara-Murin, and Snejnaya Rivers) during the main hydrological phases in 2001–2010 was studied. The concentrations of the major ions: НСО3, Cl, SO42–, Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ were determined. Water chemical composition dynamics and results of a comparative correlation analysis are showing. The geochemical model for southern tributaries of Lake Baikal is proposed.
