Research to possibilities for underground storage of radioactive disposal is very contemporary. In the long term, chlorine-36, is an important potential contributor to radiation doses arising from leakage of a nuclear waste repository. The data needed for a comprehensive radiological assessment are however limited. In particular, the accumulation of chlorine-36 in soil and vegetation of a natural ecosystem like forest is now questioned. Stable chlorine (chlorine-35) shows a high occurrence in the environment and can be used as a surrogate for studies of chlorine-36 cycling.
