This paper presents the methods used for the recovery of three low-level radioactive waste packages from deep ocean disposal sites in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The design of the recovery equipment and its utilization by the submersibles ALVIN and PISCES VI is described. Considerations for future waste disposal and recovery techniques are provided.

Identification of generic study areas for the disposal of low level radioactive waste : western North Atlantic Ocean Hollister, Charles D.; Bunce, Elizabeth T.; Chandler, Richard S. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-07)There is a growing need to effectively dispose of the low level radioactive waste presently accumulating in the United States. It may be decided to "dump" radioactive contamination products onto the deep sea floor (within ...

What do paleo-geochemical tracers tell us about the deep ocean circulation during the last ice age? LeGrand, Pascal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1994-09)Paleo-tracers such as carbon 13 and cadmium show that the deep Atlantic was enriched in nutrients during the Last Ice Age. The conventionally accepted interpretation of these higher nutrient levels is that a reduction ...
