Earth Sciences alumni are warmly invited to join us for our third annual panel discussion at The Geological Society, London. Our expert panellists will give short talks followed by questions from the floor. Afterwards there will be drinks and canapés in the Lower Library, and a chance to meet fellow alumni and the panel informally.
Venue: The Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BG
Date: 6:30pm, Monday 20 November 2017
Additional Info: Drinks and canapés will be available after the discussion in the Lower Library. The event will finish at 9pm.
The safe disposal of high-level radioactive waste has been well researched and the international consensus is that deep geological repositories are the preferred method. Only a handful of countries however – Finland, Sweden, France and the US - have started building permanent storage facilities.
The panel will be chaired by Simon Redfern, Professor of Mineral Physics and Head of Department. Simon is a member of the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management providing independent advice to the UK Government on long-term management of radioactive waste, including storage and disposal.
Our panellists include Dr Ian Farnan, Reader in Earth and Nuclear Materials; Dr Nigel Woodcock, Emeritus Reader and Dr Liz Harvey (Jesus 2003), Senior Consultant at Galson Sciences Ltd.
