Organo-clay fabric and physico-chemistry of marine mud play important roles in early sediment diagenesis including the development of mass physical properties, consolidation behavior, and sequestration of organic matter (OM) in sediments over geologic time. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images of nano- and microfabric reveal that organic matter is sequestered following enzymatic digestion despite the pervasive openness of pore-fluid pathways observed in 3D rotated images. The locations of sequestered organic matter correspond to those predicted by modeling of the potential energy of interaction. Initial flume experiments on high porosity clay-mineral-rich mud deposited under dynamic flow and static (vertical settlement) conditions...
