Carbonate sediments obtained from the Florida Bay compact to 19% of their original volume at vertical effective stresses of ~19 MPa. We resedimented samples composed of high magnesium calcite and aragonite with 42% clay-sized particles to vertical effective stresses of ~100 kPa and then performed uniaxial consolidation to derive the compression behavior… CONTINUE READING
