The authors calculate the effects of a canister containig radioactive wastes and buried 30 meters in the sediment on the ocean floor, and consider effects on thermal, chemical and mass transport processes. Other experiments on sediment-seawater interaction are cited. Also calculated is the migration of four radionuclides buried in the canister, with varying results ranging from complete containment to a break-through from the canister in terms of thousands of years.
