WMS Journal Volume 1, Issue 2
In this issue of the WMS Journal, the focus is on the accomplishments in the United Kingdom. Our Editors, Harry Babad and Leif Eriksson, have gone through each UK paper presented at WM2015 and WM2014. They have selected the eleven papers in this issue.
I have selected a twelfth paper. This is an excellent analysis by Steven Maheras, et.al., on removing used nuclear fuel from the so-called stranded nuclear utility sites in the US. This paper is part of the DOE Nuclear Fuel Storage and Transportation (NFST) program.
We asked Fred Sheil in the UK to author the country introduction. Fred, who sits on the Board of WM Symposia, has spent his career at Sellafield.
Several of you have volunteered to serve on the Editorial Advisory Board. Thank you for this. I will be forming this Board early in the new year and ask those who are on it to undertake some specific assignments.
If you are interested in submitting a paper for publication in the WMS Journal, please send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
