What would happen if high-level nuclear wastes were stored near the surface of the earth

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Six major candidate long-range waste management options were analyzed to estimate possible individual and population exposures if any one of the six options were implemented. The exposures were calculated for incremental periods up to 100 million years after processing. Each option was examined for potential scenarios that might result in pathways to man. Operational releases, migrational losses, and intrusion were evaluated for release of radioactivity. Calculated doses at incremental periods for the different release options and waste management options are tabulated. (JSR)
