Nuclear Energy: Resources, Geological Hazards, and Waste Management

Speakers:

  • Susan Hall, Uranium Resource Expert, U.S. Geological Survey
  • Annie Kammerer, Principal Seismologist, Bechtel Corporation
  • Jean M. Bahr, Professor, Department of Geoscience, University of Wisconsin-Madison

In this briefing, the speakers will address some key questions that geosciences can help to answer:

  • Does the U.S. have an adequate and stable supply of uranium to meet our needs?
  • How can we anticipate and mitigate the threat posed by natural hazards such as earthquakes and tsunamis to nuclear installations?
  • Why does geology matter in siting and assessing radioactive waste repositories?
