Following this introduction, Chapter 2 contains updated information on life cycle, status, and inventories of RH-TRU waste at selected generator sites. Chapter 3 describes the regulatory context for the disposal of RH-TRU waste. DOE’s proposed characterization plan for RH-TRU waste is described in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 provides the committee’s assessment of DOE’s proposed characterization plan. In December 2001, the committee released an interim report with initial findings and recommendations relevant to the July 2001 draft. These findings and recommendations can be found in Appendix C. DOE’s response to the committee’s interim report is reproduced in Appendix D.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
