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.

An electron density profile is observed by using an ultrashort-pulse reflectometry in the central cell of the GAMMA 10 device. The pulse having 65 ps FWHM is launched into the plasma in the O-mode and reflected at the cut off layer. The frequency range of the receiving system is 6 to 11 GHz. Time of flight of the received signal is measured via a time to amplitude converter and processed by a computer. Here, electron density profile lower than 1.5 × 1018 m−3 is reconstructed within one-shot data. The time variation of the electron density profile is acquired. Reflected wave has information of fluctuation, simultaneously. Frequency spectrum of the fluctuation is also observed.
