Sites 679, 680, and 681 of the Ocean Drilling Program were drilled along an east-west transect across an organic-rich, diatomaceous, coastal upwelling facies that occurs as a shelf/slope lens along the Peru continental margin. Seven 60-cm-long, unsplit core sections from these sites were tested for consolidation, triaxial shear strength, and geotechnical index properties. The testing showed that the sediment has unusually high water content, Atterberg limits, degree of overconsolidation, compressibility, and shear strength. The sediment...
