THE DISPOSAL OF HEAT GENERATING NUCLEAR WASTE IN DEEP OCEAN GEOLOGICAL FORMATION - A FEASIBLE OPTION
Since 1977 the International Seabed Working Group under the auspices of the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency, has been carrying out a coordinated research programme to investigate the feasibility and safety of the disposal of heat generating wastes into deep ocean abyssal plain formations. The main objectives of the research are to assess the long-term safety of the option, to identify characteristic study zones in the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and to demonstrate the necessary engineering emplacement capability within oceanic geological formations.
