Abstract

The paper gives an overview of the role of the geosphere and its stability in a safety case of geological disposal of high level radioactive waste in a clay formation. It discusses how the main geological events and processes are handled in a safety case. The Belgian reference repository site, which considers disposal in the Boom Clay formation at Mol, is given as an example.
