    severity of sediment contamination, to evaluate the effects of contaminated sediments on freshwater and marine environment, and to prepare a plan for appropriate remedial action. In field studies, monitoring is carried out to determine the variation in the concentrations of different contaminants as a function of time and depth. A new classification system is proposed for marine sediments based on the principles of soil mechanics and geology. The system can be used as an auxiliary to the unified classification system. Marine sediments are divided into three major groups: terrigenous; biogenous; and hydrogenous. Each group is then subdivided into various subgroups.

Careful practices need to be followed to minimize soil fabric changes caused from handling, transporting, storing, and preparing sediment specimens for testing.

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.

Many of the procedures use standards published by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM); however, testing soft marine sediment often requires additions to or modification of those standards.
