Deliverable D10/12: Development and application of a methology for taking climate-driven environmental change into account in performance assessments.Work package 4:Biosphere System Description. Modelling Sequential Biosphere Systems under Climate Change for Radioactive Waste Disposal(BIOCLIM).

The aim of the BIOCLIM project has been to
provide a scientific basis and practical
methodology for assessing the potential impacts
of long-term climate change on biosphere
characteristics in the context of radiological
performance assessments (PA) of radioactive waste
repositories in deep geological formations. The project
brought together twelve different European
organisations plus associated sub-contractors with
responsibilities for either the safe disposal of
radioactive waste or the development of climate
models. Through this scientific and technical
collaboration, climate models that can simulate future
climate changes in Europe over very long timescales
have been developed. The climate modelling results
have been linked to an understanding of the pattern of
biosphere changes for selected European regions in
order to address the issue of how to represent future
biosphere systems in long term radiological
The project was implemented through five work
