The paper focuses on the investigations of the optical turbulence structure. The distributions of the repeatability of the structure characteristic of the air refractive index are obtained. A scenario of decreasing the intensity of the optical turbulence in the summer is discussed. Numerical estimates of this scenario are given. Using classical methods of wavefront analysis, the results of the first studies of the vertical structure of atmospheric turbulence at the Baykal astrophysical observatory site are presented.
