Fieldwork at SKB/SFR in Forsmark, Sweden

December 12, 2016 Anna Storm went on fieldwork to the final repository for short-lived radioactive waste in Sweden – SFR – managed by the company SKB. The repository is located in the bedrock under the Baltic sea, next to the Forsmark nuclear power plant and to the so-called Biotest lake (see blog post below). In a forestry area close by, the final repository for the most highly radioactive waste, the spent nuclear fuel, is prospected. A frog species that has to be relocated because of the prospecting has been moved to new-built pools and a “frog hotel” a little further away (the earth mound that can be discerned in the picture below right.)
