- Access to a granitic rock mass in an iron ore mine in Sweden has provided a unique opportunity to conduct a comprehensive suite of underground experiments related to the geologic disposal of radioactive waste. Results of these field tests demonstrate the importance of hydrogeology and the difficulties in predicting the thermo-mechanical behavior of fractured granitic rocks. To characterize a site fully, measurements made from the surface must be supplemented by extensive subsurface measurements and experiments. Much effort is needed at this stage to generate the technology required for the development of waste repositories.
