Opis: This paper presents details of investigations that were conducted to determine the fabric (i.e., the arrangement of soil grains and pores) of undisturbed marine clay samples that were retrieved from 5 m to 65 m below the seabed. Impedance Spectroscopy (IS), which is a non-destructive and non-invasive technique, was employed to determine the electrical conductivities of the marine clay samples in their longitudinal and transverse planes of sedimentation. These results were employed to define the extent of the fabric anisotropy in terms of an anisotropy coefficient, Ae, as a function of depth. In addition, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry (MIP) were employed to study the fabric and pore-size distribution of these samples, respectively. Based on these investigations it has been observed that Ae increases with sampling depth, which is indicative of the alteration from flocculated fabric, at shallower depths, to the dispersed fabric, at deeper depths. The study highlights the importance and usefulness of the anisotropy coefficient, Ae, for determining the alteration in the fabric of marine clays, due to self-weight consolidation.
