This session will present case studies of characterization techniques that have allowed for more efficient and cost-effective identification of radiological or chemical disposition of materials in support of decommissioning. Topics may include characterization of building materials, soil, sediment, and groundwater at nuclear power plant and legacy (non-power plant) decommissioning projects.
