Abstract

Can be considered a pilot, multidisciplinary study addressing the effects of temperature on clay-rich rocks. The analogue sites investigated - in the Isle of Skye (UK), Hérault at Col du Pertus (France), and at Orciatico in Tuscany (Italy) - stimulated specialists of different backgrounds to identify the cause and effect relationships between micro-scale and macro-scale processes, changes in mineralogical and engineering properties, constraints on models describing the candidate analogues, and the degree to which the sites were analogous to heat-emitting radioactive waste repositories in clay-rich rocks.
