Abstract

This paper describes the programme for an in-situ radionuclide migration experiment in fractured crystalline rock and presents the first results of site characterisation work. This study is particularly notable for its extensive hydrologic/geochemical support programme and the use of radiotracers identified as important in safety assessment studies.
