LISA, A PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT CODE FOR GEOLOGICAL REPOSITORIES OF RADIOACTIVE WASTES
LISA, developed at JRC-Ispra, is a statistical code, which calculates the radiation exposures and risks associated with radionuclide releases from geological repositories of nuclear waste. The assessment methodology is shortly described. It requires that a number of probabilistic components be quantified and introduced in the analysis; the results are thus expressed in terms of risk. The subjective judgement of experts may be necessary to quantify the probabilities of occurrence of rare geological events. Because of large uncertainties in input data, a statistical treatment of the Monte Carlo type is utilized for the analysis; thus, the output from LISA is obtained in the form of distributions. A few results of an application to a probabilistic scenario for a repository mined in a clay bed are illustrated.
