Abstract
Three low-level radioactive waste (LLW) sites situated within three of the major surficial deposits of the United States are being investigated to determine predictive parameters that may exist for assessing the radionuclide retention at future LLW sites. Each of the major surficial deposits has a unique assemblage of sorptive minerals, texture, and chemical environmental factors that affect the sorption mechanism of the radionuclides. The LLW sites are located at Beatty, Nevada; West Valley, New York; and Barnwell, South Carolina. Preliminary results reveal predictive linear relationships for cesium and strontium in a plot of the percent sorptive minerals versus the sorption coefficient (Kd). The percent sorptive minerals are determined by a quantitative mineral method.
