The sediments of the abandoned 2800 meter Atlantic nuclear waste dumpsite have been analysed for texture mineral composition, physical properties, cation exhange capacity, and factors effecting sediment deposition, as part of an extensive program by the Environmental Protection Agency to evaluate ocean disposal as an alternative nuclear waste disposal method. The sediments physical and chemical properties are evaluated in the light of the geologic setting for their potential role in retarding radionuclide leachate migration from the waste drums to the water column.
