Workshop on dating old ground water

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A workshop on methods which might be used to date very old ground water was held on March 16--18, 1978, in Tucson, Arizona. The workshop was sponsored by the Office of Waste Isolation of Union Carbide Corporation as part of studies supported by the United States Department of Energy which are designed to evaluate the safety of proposed subsurface repositories for nuclear waste. The workshop was convened by the College of Earth Sciences of the University of Arizona with the cooperation of other university departments, particularly the Department of Physics. The dating of ground water in the vicinity of nuclear ... continued below

Description

A workshop on methods which might be used to date very old ground water was held on March 16--18, 1978, in Tucson, Arizona. The workshop was sponsored by the Office of Waste Isolation of Union Carbide Corporation as part of studies supported by the United States Department of Energy which are designed to evaluate the safety of proposed subsurface repositories for nuclear waste. The workshop was convened by the College of Earth Sciences of the University of Arizona with the cooperation of other university departments, particularly the Department of Physics. The dating of ground water in the vicinity of nuclear repositories is a critical aspect of the safety evaluation of these repositories. The age of the water gives an indication of past rates of water movement which in turn will help evaluate the likelihood of future migration of radionuclides from a given repository. Despite this rather obvious practical application, most of the workshop time was devoted to difficult technical questions related to the actual dating of the water.
