|Summary:||The fourth quarterly brine migration data report describes experiments simulating a nuclear waste repository at the 800-m (2,624-ft) level of the Asse salt mine in the Federal Republic of Germany from May 1983 through June 1984. This report describes the test equipment, the Asse salt mine, and the pretest properties of the salt in the test gallery. This report also includes test data for the first 13 months of operations on brine migration rates, borehole pressure, salt temperatures, and thermomechanical behavior of the salt. An annual report has been prepared for the year 1983 describing the test activities on a yearly basis. The duration of the experiments will be approximately 2 years, ending in December 1985.—Modified journal abstract.|
