Features, Events, and Processes
(FEP) are terms used in the field of radioactive waste
management to define relevant scenarios for safety assessment studies. For a radioactive waste repository, features
would include the characteristics of the site, such as the type of soil
or geological formation
the repository is to be built on or under. Events
would include things that may or will occur in the future, like, e.g.
, or formation of faults
are things that are ongoing, such as the erosion
of the landform where the site is located on, or near.
Several catalogues of FEP's are publicly available, a.o., this one elaborated for the NEA Clay Club dealing with the disposal of radioactive waste in deep clay formations
, and those compiled for deep crystalline rocks (granite) by Svensk Kärnbränslehantering AB, SKB, the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company.
