- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 75.00
Confidence among both technical experts and the public in the safety of deep geologic repositories for radioactive waste is a key element in the successful development of the repositories. This report presents the approaches and arguments that are currently used in OECD countries to establish and communicate confidence in their safety. It evaluates... more...
- Allen & Unwin 2005; US$ 10.86
A book that unearths the facts about rubbish and recycling through the ages: from dustmen, mudlarks, toshers and rakers to litter on Everest; from George Clooney's pig pal, Max, to a dunny fit for a Chinese emperor. This is the fourteenth title in the more...
- SME 2008; US$ 79.00
Basics of Metal Mining Influenced Water is a mustread for planners, regulators, consultants, land managers, students, researchers, or others concerned about the environmentally sound management of metal mine wastes and drainage quality. The first of a series of six handbooks on technologies for managing metal mine and metallurgical process draining,... more...
- SME 2009; US$ 89.00
Mitigation of Metal Mining Influenced Water is the "how to fix it" volume in a series of six handbooks on technologies for managing metal mine and metallurgical process influenced water. Unlike other texts that focus exclusively on acid drainage from coal mines, this comprehensive series examines both acidic and neutral pH waters from metal mining... more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2005; US$ 98.00
This report presents the results of Phase II of the NEA Sorption Project, which was initiated as a major international contribution towards demonstrating the consistency and applicability of different thermodynamic sorption models to support the selection of a sorption parameter, namely Kd values, for safety assessments. It was implemented in the form... more...

The Integration Group for the Safety Case (IGSC) of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) is co-sponsoring a project with the European Commission to develop a greater understanding of how to achieve the necessary integration for successful design, construction, testing, modelling and performance assessment of engineered barrier systems (EBS). These proceedings... more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010; US$ 91.00
These workshop proceedings highlight the significant amount of work accomplished over the past decade in delivering transparent, proportionate regulation for geological disposal, and identify important differences between national regulations even if these are not in contradiction with international guidance. They also underline... more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2002; US$ 92.00
GEOTRAP is the OECD/NEA Project on Radionuclide Migration in Geologic, Heterogeneous Media carried out in the context of site evaluation and safety assessment of deep repository systems for long-lived radioactive waste. Retention of radionuclides within the geosphere for prolonged periods is an important safety function of deep geologic disposal concepts... more...

In underground repositories for radioactive waste, significant quantities of gases may be generated as a result of several processes. The potential impact of gas generation, accumulation and migration on the performances of the various barriers and, ultimately, on the long-term safety of a repository, should therefore be assessed in the development... more...
