Abstract: The proceedings of the fifth International Conference on High Level Radioactive Waste Management, held on May 22-26, 1994, Las Vegas, Nevada, continues a concerted effort to transfer technology and ideas across the functional attributes of high level waste management, processing, storage, transport, and disposal. The book is divided into four volumes. Volume one is concerned with institutional systems such as EPA's outreach program and their impact while volume two discusses engineered systems such as tunneling operations and multi-purpose containers. The third volume explores integrated systems in a variety of areas. Two examples are transportation routing models and criteria for deep disposal. The final volume deals with natural systems such as ground-water recharge, gas migration within clay, and thermohydrological behavior. The wide range of topics covered in conjunction with the increased participation of the international community provide a basis for informed decisions regarding the scientific and policy issues concerning the safe disposal of high-level radioactive wastes.
