Development of NA concepts in support of radwaste disposal safety cases, planning and initiation of NA projects, reviews of NA projects, use of NAs in public communication materials.
The team have been involved continuously with NAs since this area started to expand in the early 1980s, produced the first comprehensive overviews of use to support repository safety assessments and helped establish and run the Natural Analogues Working Group (NAWG).
They have also planned, implemented and documented some of the largest and most successful NA projects – many of which are being run as international collaborations.
The importance of NAs to communicate key technical issues to the general public was recognised at an early stage and resulted in the “Traces of the Future” video, a wide range of tailored articles and brochures for different audiences and ongoing advanced multi-media projects.
