Abstract

The fourth meeting of the CEC-sponsored natural analogue working group (NAWG) was held in Scotland in June 1990, and also included the final workshop of the Poços de Caldas (Brazil) natural analogue project. The meeting reviewed and discussed five years of progress and activities of natural analogues in central areas of performance assessment: waste forms and engineered barriers, geochemistry and radionuclide speciation, radionuclide migration and the overall geological context of radwaste disposal. It was concluded that the use of natural analogues had greatly increased understanding of relevant processes and scientific capability to describe and model them. Performance assessment groups are now effectively using analogue sites as test-beds.
