Where to dispose of Britain's nuclear waste
Introduction to the exercise and how the system works
This page explains what it is you will be doing in this exercise and provides details of how the system works. The next few pages will explain some of the important issues surrounding the substantive problem of nuclear waste disposal in the UK.
These issues include the relationship with geography and how Geographical Information Systems (GIS) can be used to help solve the complex problem of finding a suitable disposal/storage site.
After this you will have the opportunity to use a web-based GIS to help make informed choices and decisions about nuclear waste management.
To help you understand how the system works, together with further information about nuclear waste issues here is an additional hand-out:
It is recommended that you read the relevant handout before continuing with the system.
