The paper aimed to determine the rate of change in swelling behaviour and liquid limit of clayey soils when exposed to natural seawater with respect to distilled water. The four clayey soil samples were gathered with different mineralogy and plasticity characteristics and tested to determine liquid limit and swelling characteristics in the presence of distilled water, tap water and seawater. The seawater effect is most noticed on the swelling behavior for montmorillonitic soils which have high plasticity.
