                     Special Lecture Presentation on

                  "Long-term Storage of Hazardous Waste -
                   A Perspective on How to Deal with them"

                           by Dr. Paolo F. Ricci
             Visiting Professor, University of San Francisco



Abstract:

The need to make decisions over long periods of time is legal, but it  
is based (informed) by scientific and economic factors. The focus of  
the discussion is on that combination and on some of the issues that  
arise when society attempts to deal with long-term processes that are  
invariably very costly and often uncertain. Although the motivation is  
the storage of nuclear wastes, the issues discussed are of immediate  
concern whenever society faces intergenerational trade-offs.
