|Title:||Deep circulation in the Indian and Pacific Oceans and its implication for the dumping of low-level radioactive waste|
Radioactive waste disposal
|Publisher:||Australian Atomic Energy Commission|
|Abstract:||The complexity of ocean transport processes has meant that the limits for the dumping of low-activity radioactive wastes have had to be based on very simplified models of the oceans. This report discusses the models used to determine dumping limits and contrasts them with the known ocean circulation patterns. The deep circulations of the Indian and Pacific Oceans are reviewed to provide a basis for estimating the possible destinations and likely transit times for dissolved material released at the ocean floor.|
