Abstract

Results are presented of a decision exercise to evaluate six hypothetical sites for nuclear waste disposal. The decision-making group were ten technical specialists who were attending an international meeting on this subject. Public attitudes toward the proposed sites were provided as one item of information. The suitability of alternative multiattribute rating techniques was explored; the participants chose a simplified method in preference to one based upon hypothetical multi-dimensional gambles. The decision-making group successfully used this simplified technique to aggregate technological and social issues in their decision.
