Abstract: The oedometer consolidation properties of the clay layers of varved sediments from New Liskeard, Ontario have been presented and interpreted with reference to current ideas on soil fabric, bonding, and environment of deposition. The sensitive, brittle nature of the clays is expressed by Cc values as high as 1.35 and "S" shaped consolidation curves. Preconsolidation above any previous possible overburden pressure is explained by bonding of a net random, flocculated fabric as measured by X-ray diffraction metho…
