Caption: Nuclear waste storage. Steel drums containing nuclear waste at a dump at a nuclear weapons testing site. The drums contain solid waste which is made up of transuranics, radioactive chemical elements with heavy atomic nuclei which are made in nuclear reactions. These drums will be packed, 50 at a time, into steel cargo containers for storage above ground. Corrosion of these containers will be minimised because of the dry desert climate of the site. Photographed at the Area 5 Radioactive Waste Management Site at Frenchman Flat in Nevada, USA.
