Detail

This review was carried out by RSK STATS Limited on behalf of the Environment Agency under the terms of an agreement with the EA Nuclear Decommissioning Authority’s Radioactive Waste Management Directorate (RWMD).

It provides the contractor’s view of RWMD’s generic work on the application of geophysical surveying techniques to characterise candidate sites for a geological disposal facility (GDF).

It includes a summary of the capabilities and limitations of relevant geophysical surveying techniques, and a critical review of RWMD’s strategy for applying these techniques in its Geosphere Characterisation Project (GCP).
