English term or phrase: Nuclear waste disposal terms
I'm translating a document dealing with nuclear waste disposal. I need help with the following terms:
Background Radiation
Nuclear waste (I have problems with waste, is it residuos o desechos nucleares?)
Salt deposits (Depósitos o yacimientos de sal?)
Salt beds
The Permian Sea (this is an ancient sea, couldn't find the Spanish name anywhere, could it be Mar Permiano?)
Bedded salt: sal estratificada?
Deep giologic disposal, as in "Environmentally sound deep geologic disposal of radioactive waste"
Walk-through briefs: Podría ser sesiones informativas de inspección?

I know these are a lot of terms, any help is appreciated.
