Abstract:
Japan is located on the westem edge of the Pacific plate, in one of the most dynamic areas on Earth, with approximately 80 active volcanoes and considerable tectonic activity. The Japanese Nuclear Waste Management Organisation (NUMO) will construct a deep geological repository for high level nuclear waste somewhere in Japan. Potential hazard posed by a new volcanic event occurring and disrupting this facility during its operational lifetime need to be thoroughly assessed.
