Chemical issues in nuclear waste disposal.


This review of a serious national study of nuclear waste disposal was designed to provide interested science teachers with some facts about the types of scientific and technological concerns involved in these problems. This study was done in Sweden; it involved international review, and led to a public referendum on nuclear energy. Information included related to types of nuclear wastes constituents, and assessment of a disposal method and a geologic site. Radiation safety analysis was discussed. 4 figures. 2 tables.
