Abstract: At the Lampen site outside of Kalix, Sweden two embankments with heights 1,5m and 2m have been built to study and test the properties of sulfide soil that is located in the Gulf of Bothnia coastal areas. In this master thesis investigations have been done on what more could be done at the Lampen site today concerning new technics, measurements, observations and calculations etc. rather than building new embankments. Conclusions have been drawn from a total of 7 cases including Lampen what more could be done at the Lampen site. Verifications have also been done on the work made at the different cases. It was concluded that the work on all the different cases could be verified in some way against hand calculations or PLAXIS models beside the Murro test embankment site because this work had too little release data aterial given. Made verifications gave corresponding results to the described and measured ones in the real cases. Cases that have been looked at are:
