The United States currently has no place to dispose of the high-level radioactive waste resulting from the production of the nuclear weapons and the operation of nuclear electronic power plants. The only option under formal consideration at this time is to place the waste in an underground geologic respository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada. This book shows the extent to which the authors' scientific knowledge can guide the federal government in developing a standard to protect the health of the public from wastes in such a respository at Yucca Mountain.
