  • Evaluation of elements responsible for the effective engaged dose rates associated with the final storage of radioactive waste: Everest project: Volume 1: Common aspects of the study


In the Everest project an assessment has been made of the quantitative impact in the long tern on the performance estimators due to the variability and uncertainties affecting the various items entering into the performance assessment for a repository for radioactive waste (high-level as well as medium-level). The work includes model parameter variability, conceptual model differences, scenario characteristics, and future states of the repository system. Disposal concepts in three different host rock formations, clay, granite and rock salt have been considered. The report EUR 17449 EN presents all details of the study and consists of four different volumes divided into six parts. This publication, Volume 1, presents common aspects of the study. The results were analysed in order to put into evidence the predominant factors and phenomena. Recommendations for further research and development work have been expressed.
