An investigation was made of the radionuclide makeup of light-water nuclear reactors' radioactive wastes presently being consigned to shallow land burial. The studies were contracted through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and consisted of radiochemical analyses of spent ion exchange resins, evaporator concentrates and filter sludges for specific radionuclides including activation products, fission products and transuranics. Ten waste samples were obtained from two BWRs and two PWRs.
