"Preface This book is intended to serve as a valuable resource for decommissioning professionals, particularly those charged with planning and implementing radiological surveys in support of decommissioning. The book equips the reader with proven strategies for demonstrating to regulators and the stakeholder community that contaminated sites can be released for other beneficial uses. This goal is achieved through detailed derivations and discussion of technical bases, and illustrated through real-world examples. The book articulates clearly the technical issues that arise during decommissioning projects--including the application of statistics for survey design and data reduction, selection of survey instrumentation and detection sensitivity, final status survey procedures, and dose modeling to translate release criteria to measurable quantities--and presents solutions for navigating the complexity inherent in designing and implementing MARSSIM and MARSAME surveys. Case studies and worked examples are used extensively to clarify the technical concepts presented. Examples and problems are provided in many of the chapters, and detailed solutions are furnished in the appendix. Finally, the specific survey issues related to uranium, thorium, power reactor, and university/research facilities are discussed in detail, and include effective strategies for streamlining final status surveys. This second edition of Decommissioning Health Physics is an extensive revision of the first edition. Significant changes in this new edition include the following: - Chapter 3 on characterization was extensively revised to reflect the recent guidance in ANSI N13.59 on the use of DQOs for planning surveys"--Provided by publisher.
