Gas composition related to the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory Project

Miyakawa, Kazuya  ; Tamamura, Shuji*; Nakata, Kotaro*; Hasegawa, Takuma*

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency has been involved in ongoing research in the Horonobe area for the purposes of geoscientific research, and research and development (R&D) on technologies to be used for the geological disposal of high-level radioactive waste. The chemistry of groundwater and dissolved gas from deep boreholes has been obtained since H13 fiscal year for R&D on technologies related to geological characterization. Horonobe Research Institute for the Subsurface Environment (H-RISE) has investigated a resources development on promoting effective use of coal bed buried in Hokkaido including the Horonobe area using microbial communities. The data of dissolved gas from the Horonobe groundwater have also been obtained along with the microbiological research by H-RISE. Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry (CRIEPI) has conducted R&D on technology of groundwater geochronology which is one of technologies to be used for the geological disposal, and noble gas data from the Horonobe groundwater have been obtained by CRIEPI. This report shows a data set which comprises gas data obtained from the Horonobe underground research project during the period from H13 fiscal year to H27 fiscal year.
