The physicochemical characteristics of bottom sediments in inland water bodies in the Central and Southern Vietnam are presented for the first time, including particle-size distribution, organic matter content, bulk density, and natural moisture content. The main types of sediments in rivers, lakes, reservoirs, abandoned quarries, and ponds were determined. The physicochemical properties of bottom sediments in Vietnam water bodies and Volga Chain reservoirs were found to be similar. General features were revealed in the formation of bottom sediments in water bodies under humid, arid, and tropic monsoon climate.
