Formation, handling, storage, and disposal of nuclear wastes

Formation, handling, storage, and disposal of nuclear wastes

Journal of Geological Education 38(5): 380-392

Nuclear wastes present the earth scientist with a host of serious and extremely long term (and expensive) environmental problems. Only one aspect, the temporary storage and ultimate disposal sites for the most concentrated products of nuclear fission, the high-level nuclear waste (HLNW), has been given much attention. Environmental threats of various magnitudes, from both high- and low-level nuclear wastes, occur at many stages in the production of nuclear energy, from the uranium mine through to the permanent disposal site. The informed earth-science teacher can have a tremendous impact on public discussions of these socially important questions.--Modified journal abstract.
