Research Grant

Dr Mike Wood (UNIGIS Programme Leader) has recently been awarded a research grant to develop new approaches to the consideration of spatial and temporal scales when undertaking assessments of the long-term impact of radioactive waste disposal.  The ‘Scales for Post-Closure Assessment Scenarios (SPACE)’ project has been funded through the BIOPROTA forum (, an international network of organisations supporting research on the biosphere impact of radioactive waste management.  The project is being undertaken in conjunction with RadEcol, GMS Abingdon Ltd and the University of Stirling.  Key outputs from the project will be published during 2014.
