Humic Substances in Performance Assessment of Nuclear Waste Disposal: Actinide and Iodine Migration in the Far-field (HUPA), Final report, EUR 21928

Project ID: FIKW-CT-2001-00128
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


The present project is one in a series of research activities supported by the European Commission on the role of humic substances for the long-term safety of nuclear waste disposal. These activities started in the mid-eighties within the MIRAGE project (MIgration of RAdionuclides in the GEosphere) with the most recent project prior to the present one being Effects of Humic Substances on the Migration of Radionuclides: Complexation and Transport of Actinides (HUMICS). The HUMICS project was conducted within the fourth framework programme of the European Commissions. It started January 1997 and had a duration of three years. The results of the HUMICS project can be found in three open technical progress reports and a final report [1-4].
The present HUPA project is conducted within the Commissions fifth framework programme. It started November 2001 and had a duration of three years. Also for this project, detailed scientific technical results can also be found in technical progress reports [5-7]. By this approach, in addition to publication in various scientific journals and conference proceedings, detailed scientific technical results are available to interested parties in a compact form. Furthermore, some of the more preliminary and/or detailed results are not likely to appear in scientific journals and proceedings. Therefore, persons interested in detailed scientific technical results of the present and the foregoing projects dealing with the influence of humic substances on the migration of radionuclides in the geosphere need to consult these technical progress reports.
