Classification and Disposal of Radioactive Waste in Australia - Consideration of Criteria for Near Surface Burial in an Arid Area (PDF 676kb)

PLEASE NOTE: This Technical Report was prepared as background for the development of NHMRC Code of practice for the near-surface disposal of radioactive waste in Australia (1992) published as no. 35 of the NHMRC Radiation Health Series (RHS 35). While the material in this Technical Report was appropriate and up to date at the time of preparation, some material may have been replaced by a range of IAEA and other publications since that time. It was decided to publish this material anyway, to ensure that the basic information used for development of RHS 35 remains available.
