GeoRepNet, or the Geological Repository Network, is a network funded by the STFC Futures Programme (UK) to investigate the major scientific and technical challenges in the establishment and monitoring of geological repositories. The network comprises six workpackages that address the geophysical, geochemical and biological challenges of establishing and operating geological repositories and investigate methods of monitoring geological repositories.
- Graduate students and scientists
- Lecture about how microorganisms can both positively and negatively influence a final repository for spent nuclear fuel. Emphasized, among other things, the importance of being pro-active, meaning that one must prevent negative effects of microbial activity through smart and well thought out solutions of barriers and containments.
