The present report describes progress within the first year of the EC-project “Humic Substances in Performance Assessment of Nuclear Waste Disposal: Actinide and Iodine Migration in the Far-Field”. Without being a formal requirement of the Commission or cofunding bodies, this report documents results in great technical detail and make the results available to a broad scientific community.
The report contains an executive summary written by the coordinator. More detailed results are given as individual contributions in the form of 11 annexes. Not all results are discussed or referred to in the executive summary report and thus readers with a deeper interest also need to consult the annexes.
also reflects the successful integration of a temporary contributor via a
Marie-Curie Fellowship (MCFI-2001-01983) (Annex 11). Integration of this
activity extends the scope of the project to a new potential source of humic
substances in clay. Results of the coming two years of the project will be published
in the same form, i.e. as open FZKA reports.
