Abstract

Models of groundwater flow and transport are routinely used as part of the safety assessment of a site, and increasingly to aid the site investigation strategy and design of a proposed repository. This emphasis puts greater demands on those models to reflect a higher level of realism to incorporate additional information in the vicinity of the repository. This paper describes a successful approach to incorporate these different scales, from canister- to regional-scale, within one model. Such an approach is able to resolve the details of groundwater flow around the waste packages in the overall hydrological setting of the site.
