The approaches include physical calculations from collected data as well as estimates from current transport and diffusion software. The analysis begins with the estimation of release. There are sufficient data on the concentrations of radionuclides in the most contaminated areas of the Hanford Site, but very little on the land in between. Hanford Site environmental surveillance data report for calendar year Technical Report Bisping, L E Environmental surveillance at the Hanford Site collects data that provides a historical record of radionuclide and radiation levels attributable to natural causes, worldwide fallout, and Hanford operations.

radiological and chemical conditions existing in the near-shore environment of the Hanford Site’s Area. The results from this study were published in September (PNNL). Since PNNL was issued, several errors have been identified and some additional data have been requested. @article{osti_, title = {Routine Radiological Environmental Monitoring Plan, Volume 2 Appendices}, author = {Bechtel Nevada}, abstractNote = {Supporting material for the plan includes: QUALITY ASSURANCE, ANALYSIS, AND SAMPLING PLAN FOR NTS AIR; QUALITY ASSURANCE, ANALYSIS, AND SAMPLING PLAN FOR WATER ON AND OFF THE NEVADA TEST SITE; QUALITY ASSURANCE, ANALYSIS. In , there were 20 instances of radiological contamination in investigative soil samples. There were 31 instances of radiological contamination in investigative vegetation samples in Of the 31 instances, 27 were identified as tumbleweeds or tumbleweed fragments, one as . MSA’s Ecological Monitoring team monitors the biota including State and Federally listed species to assess the abundance, vigor or condition, and distribution on the Hanford Site. The associated data is used by U.S. Department of Energy and Hanford Site contractors to support environmental cleanup and restoration activities, mitigation actions, and land use planning, and to maintain compliance with ecological resource laws.
