  • Analysis of Risks Associated with Nuclear Submarine Decommissioning, Dismantling and Disposal

    A great number of nuclear submarines are due to be decommissioned before 2000. The political decisions surrounding the disposal of nuclear compartments, radioactive wastes and spent fuel differ appreciably between the countries that own the boats. The decision makers involved thus need help in comparing and assessing alternative options for ...
