Meeting of the Committee of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences on 11 December 2013

During the meeting of the Committee of Geological Sciences on 11 December 2013, Dr. hab. Marek Jarosiński, prof. PIG-PIB presented the lecture entitled “Geodynamic conditions of the nuclear power plant localization”. Dr. hab. Marek Jarosiński, prof. PIG-PIB is a leading expert in dealing with problems of  locating nuclear facilities.  The presentation  is a subsequent one in a series of lectures delivered during the meetings of the Committee of Geological Sciences PAN discussing important geological issues for the country.

Dr. hab. Marek Jarosiński, prof. PIG-PIB introduced which activities have already been taken and what are the planned activities related to the recognition of geodynamic hazards to nuclear power plant in Poland. Prof. Jarosiński also briefly discussed the legislative and administrative framework for research of the location. The rest of the lecture was devoted to a discussion of the possible impact of individual risk factors (defined as geodynamic) and the possibility of their sufficient characterization, due to the specific geological structure, neotectonic context and limited research techniques. The discussion was addressed the preferred location of potential power plants along the Baltic Sea shore.
