Paper Abstract

The exact physical and chemical nature of 55 million gallons of radioactive toxic waste held in 177 underground waste tanks at the Hanford Site is not known with sufficient detail to support the safety, retrieval, and immobilization missions presented to Hanford. The purpose of this study is to estimate probability distributions for the inventory of each of 72 analytes in each of 177 tanks. This will enable uncertainty intervals to be calculated for inventories and should facilitate the safety, retrieval, and immobilization missions.
