The results of conventional oedometric tests carried out on organic soil samples have been revised, calculating the coefficient of secondary consolidation at different load increments. A linear relationship has been observed between this coefficient and the logarithm of water content. The result of the monitoring of four embankments on organic soils is also presented and is compared with the results of conventional oedometric tests obtaining an acceptable correlation in two of the four cases
