Facility and site characterisation feature amongst the topics covered in this video segment. The purpose of characterisation discussed on this video is to identify the nature and extent of the contamination present, along with the type, level and distribution of radioactivity present. Characterisation is a generic topic applicable to many different types of nuclear facilities. Detailed descriptions are provided on the key elements of characterisation consisting of safety and hazard analysis, capturing and recording operational process knowledge, and real time measurement versus laboratory analysis. Some of the discussion is dedicated to validation techniques for creating confidence in the data acquired.
