T. Spillmann, P. Blümling, E. Manukyan, S. Marelli, H. R. Maurer, S.A. Greenhalgh and A.G. Green discuss Swiss research programmes to develop safe solutions for the longterm disposal of high-level radioactive waste in which geophysics plays an important role with respect to site characterization and development of monitoring techniques. Several seismic projects are highlighted in the report.
