Chemical and physical properties of Suez Canal bottom sediments (SCBS) and sea water at port Tawfeek area, the south entrance of Suez canal, have been studied. The SCBS was separated into its size fractions (natural sediment, sand, silt and clay). These different sediment fractions were allwed to be in equilibrium with89Sr,60Co and134Cs solutions. Desorption studies were carried out on these contaminated sediments.
