Description: Disposition of low-level solid waste packages at the Hanford Site requires quantifying the radioactive contents of each container. This study generated conversion factors to apply to the results of contact surveys that are performed with standard dose rate survey instruments by field health physics technicians. This study determined the accuracy of this method, and identified the major sources of uncertainty. It is concluded that the dominant error is associated with the possibility that the radioactive source is not homogeneously distributed.
