Title: Monitoring Developments for Safe Repository Operation and staged Closure - The International MoDeRn Project - 12040

Abstract

The main goal of the collaborative, European Commission 7. Framework MoDeRn project is to take the state-of-the-art of broadly accepted, main monitoring objectives and to develop these to a level of description that is closer to the actual implementation of monitoring during the staged approach of the disposal process. To achieve this goal, 18 partners representing 12 countries and including 8 Waste Management Organizations joined their efforts since 2009, and aim at developing a reference framework for repository monitoring by 2013. Achieving this goal includes analysis of whether the implementation of a realistic monitoring programme is likely to address expert and lay stakeholder expectations (objectives), to provide an understanding of monitoring activities and available technologies that can be implemented in a repository context (feasibility), and to provide recommendations for related, future stakeholder engagement activities (social acceptance). Monitoring programs should describe activities likely to verify - with the aim of confirming and possibly enhancing the prior license basis for safety and pre-closure management options - expected repository system evolutions (i.e. natural environment and engineered system evolutions) during a progressive construction, operation and closure phase that may last on the order of a century.
