This guide is Unit 4 of the four-part series, Science, Society, and America's Nuclear Waste, produced by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office Civilian Radioactive Waste Management. The goal of this unit is to explain how transportation, a geologic repository, and the multi-purpose canister will work together to provide short-term and long-term protection of people and the environment. These concerns are introduced by three lesson plans. The second section provides ten lesson plans that explore other issues related to transportation and storage of high-level nuclear waste. Activity sheets for students, transparencies for the lesson plans, and background notes are included in the third section followed by the unit test. Answers keys and a glossary are also included. Contains 11 references. (DDR)
