Data on the nitrogen dioxide concentrations in winter 2005-2006 in the vicinity of Irkutsk, obtained using the gas-analyzer, are analyzed and compared with meteorological conditions for the same period. The concentrations of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide in the adjacent to water layer of Lake Baikal vary between 1 and 10 g/m3. Maximal sulfur dioxide concentrations were recorded in the vicinity of Baikal Pulp and Paper Plant (Southern Baikal). Calculated and measured data on sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide concentrations were found to be in good agreement.
