GEOPROSPECTIVE STUDY OF A DISPOSAL SITE. VOLUME 6 - TAKING SEISMIC ACTIVITY INTO ACCOUNT
This report deals with the problem of taking seismic activity into account for a prospective safety analysis applied to the containment of radioactive wastes in deep geological formations. The first part briefly gives some basic notions of seismicity and specifies the problems and available methods existing to perform predictive analysis. In the second part the main features of recent tectonics and seismicity of the European area and France are succinctly exposed. Two selected "test zones" are studied. The probabilistic assessment of earthquake occurrence is discussed in the third part; first in general terms, then for the two selected areas. The fourth part deals with nature and magnitude of the effects of earthquake on underground facilities and with the weight of several factors as those related to seismic sources and geological properties of the site, from a literature review. Literature data about the effects of earthquakes on regional hydrogeology are summarized in the fifth part. The main conclusions from each part are recalled in the sixth chapter.
