The Effect of Microbial Activity on the Containment of Radioactive Waste in a Deep Geological Repository

  • Julia M. West (a1), Ian G. Mckinley (a1) and Neil A. Chapman (a1)

Extract

Much effort is currently centred on the construction of elaborate computer programs to model the release to the biosphere of radionuclides from proposed high level radioactive waste repositories in deep geological formations. Although the lack or poor quality of background data is often emphasised, it is generally considered that by examining a wide range of possible values of the important parameters involved, likely processes are assessed or their omission and possible relevence is acknowledged.
