Careful practices need to be followed to minimize soil fabric changes caused from handling, transporting, storing, and preparing sediment specimens for testing. Note 1: The quality of the result produced by this standard is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used.

This manual has no immediate or direct regulatory consequence.

Components include the solid minerals or biogenous sediment framework and the fluid or gaseous pore filling. Important engineering properties of marine sediments for which significant amounts of data are available include bulk density, water content, porosity, permeability, plasticity, state of consolidation, and shear strength. 2 - 4 Soft 4 - 8 Medium 8 - 15 Stiff 15 - 30 Very stiff 30 Hard 3. Soil Classification Soils should be described using the Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) in the nar­ rative lithologic description section of Figure 5.

Marine sediment, any deposit of insoluble material, primarily rock and soil particles, transported from land areas to the ocean by wind, ice, and rivers, as well as the remains of marine organisms, products of submarine volcanism, chemical precipitates from seawater, and materials from outer space (e.g., meteorites) that accumulate on the seafloor.

Once the sediment has been obtained, the En Core® Sampler, syringes, stainless steel spatula, standard 2-oz. sediment VOC container, or pre-prepared 40 ml vials may be used/required for subsampling.
