Iraj Noorany, Robert A. Zinser

Abstract


Near surface sea floor sediments were obtained "by the tracked underwater •vehicle RUM from four locations on the floor of the La Jolla Canyon. The sediments were clayey silts of high plasticity. The engineering properties of the sediments, including grain size, index properties, strength and compressibility, were determined.
