Rapidly distinguishing itself from its 22 sister schools, the Channel Islands campus of California State University system will boast a $35 million library housing the first official repository
for the creative and academic works of CSU faculty and staff.
Spengler with the USGS in Denver and his colleagues reported that the principal fault running through the proposed repository
area actually has several parallel strands extending across a width of 215 meters.
On its own, this one piece of data would indicate that at some point in the past, the water table sat high enough to flood the planned repository
, says Joseph F.
Until these tests can satisfy the questions of the Academy, the DOE will not continue loading the other 100,000 drums that are part of the pilot phase of the repository
operation, says Wendell Weart of the Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.
While it sounds simple, the plan is complicated by one sobering fact: The radioactive waste to be placed in the repository
will remain dangerous for more than 10,000 years.
But scientists from the federal government's Sandia National Laboratory in Albuquerque, who have studied the hydrology of the WIPP site for the DOE, told the task force that the amount of water entering the repository
