NRC schedules webinars on Holtec’s proposed New Mexico storage site
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has scheduled four webinars in late August and early September to present its draft environmental findings and receive comments on Holtec International’s proposed consolidated spent nuclear fuel storage facility in New Mexico. Webinars were previously held on June 23 and July 9.
As published in the August 13 Federal Register, the public comment webinars will be held on August 20 from 6–9 p.m., August 25 from 2–5 p.m., August 26 from 6–9 p.m., and September 2 from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. All times are Eastern. Information for the webinars is posted on the NRC’s Public Meetings webpage.

The damping mechanism of left-hand circularly polarized wave (L wave) near the electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) point, which has been considered not to be theoretically related to ECR, is investigated. The L wave and the right-hand circularly polarized wave (R wave) can be decomposed from the observed interferometric wave pattern, and it is found that not only the R wave but also the L wave is absorbed and damped in the ECR region. This damping of the L wave can be interpreted by the polarization reversal between the L and R waves. Furthermore, the polarization reversal from the L wave into the R wave is found to be enhanced in the lower electron temperature.
