WIPP Remote-Handled Transuranic Waste Study - Footnote 3

Minimum, maximum, and best estimate are based on effects of pH, pressure, and temperature from experimental data performed at SNL and PNL. Best estimates represent the most realistic value. Maximum rates are calculated from the effects of the lowest pH, the highest total pressure, and higher temperatures than what are expected in the repository. Minimum rates are based on experimental data from passivation studies conducted at PNL [Brush, 1995].
