Monitoring chlorine cycle in environmental matrices is important to better characterize the reference state and the water cycle for the predisposal planning of radioactive waste. Methods and protocols for 36Cl  analysis in environment have to be tested in order to monitor  the performance of the radioactive waste repository.
