Abstract

It is nontrivial to find and design safe repository sites for nuclear waste. It appears common sense to drill tunnels as repository sites in a mountain in remote and relatively dry regions. However, erosion of the waste canisters by naturally abundant chemicals in the mountains water cycle remains a problem. Other problems may be caused by geophysical phenomenon like volcanic eruptions. Yucca Mountain is a location which has been proposed as storage site. We investigate the consequences of evolving magma flows in the repository systems, because the probability of magmatic activity at Yucca Mountain is too high to neglect an investigation of volcanic effects.
