Site Selection Site selection


The selection and confirmation of sites for geological disposal of radioactive waste is both technically complex – requiring synthesis of large multidisciplinary knowledge bases – and highly politically sensitive.

Since 1979, team members have provided active support in these areas in crystalline, sedimentary and evaporite rocks in diverse geological settings – ranging from inland continental in Switzerland to coastal in Japan and the UK.

A recent focus has been on assessing options for offshore sites accessed from land.
