  • The MIRAGE project - Second phase: laboratory and in-situ experiments on the geochemistry of actinides and fission products in natural aquifer systems (COCO Club)


The coordinated project MIRAGE was launched by the Commission of the European Communities in 1982. It brings together cost-sharing research contracts with organisations in the Member States and direct activities of the programme of the Joint Research Centre at Ispra (Italy). The objective of this project is concentrated on the study of the transfer of radioactivity from conditioned waste through the different barriers up to the interface between the geosphere and biosphere. In order to supply relevant data for safety assessments of the geological disposal of radioactive waste, work has concentrated on the geochemistry of actinides and fission products in natural aquifer systems, as well as on laboratory and in-situ migration experiments. These studies address the influence of natural organic substances and colloids on transport processes.
