Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

There are approximately 1800 uncontrollable hazardous waste sites across the United States. The Department of Energy (DOE) is responsible for cleaning up several of these sites that were contaminated as a result of producing weapon-grade nuclear fuels in different states since the 1940s. Site characterization is the first and a very critical step in the remediation program of a radioactive contaminated site. During this process, all the necessary information about location, level, and chemical composition of the contaminated sites must be collected for the clean up planning. Ames Laboratory, one of the U.S. Department of Energy sites, has adopted ...
