WWW.HZDR.DE discovered 02.15 TITLE STADIUM SIZED "MICROSCOPE": At the ESRF in Grenoble researchers use HZDR’s beamline ROBL to decode the chemistry of radioactive elements and their compounds. Photo: ESRF/Ginter _Institute of Resource Ecology at HZDR Dr. Andreas Scheinost CONTACT surface of the iron-based minerals which are present in the granite or clay, but also in the ground water and the rust on the waste containers. "All of this knowledge is taken into consideration when designing possible repositories and helps to make them safer," Scheinost concludes. A sharp eye for the smallest of details thus forms a more solid foundation for the whole. PUBLICATIONS: S. Dulnee, A.C.
