Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste: Review of Developments in the Last Decade
|The concept of removing long-lived radioactive wastes from the
human environment by disposal in deep geological repositories was developed
several decades ago. In the intervening years, research efforts world-wide have
increased our knowledge and understanding of how underground disposal systems
will function over very long periods of time. Geological Disposal of
Radioactive Waster is a review of developments in the past decade. The
primary sources of information are the answers to a questionnaire provided by
waste management organisations represented in the NEA Radioactive Waste
Management Committee (RWMC). The latter is an international forum of senior
specialists from safety authorities, waste management agencies, R&D
institutions and policy-making bodies.
