  • The long term storage of radioactive waste and its geological, biological, physical, and chemical effects are considered. The development of acceptable waste repositories are outlined: (1) identification of sites that meet broad criteria for tectonic stability, slow ground-water movement, and long flow paths to the surface; (2) intensive subsurface exploration of such sites to determine the hydrologic and geologic conditions in and around the potential repository; (3) predictions of repository… CONTINUE READING
