Abstract

In this study we apply a cumulative belief degrees approach to an environmental sampling example in nuclear safeguards evaluation. Transformation formulas for each indicator are defined for distinguishing anthropogenic natural uranium from mineral uranium. An order weighted averaging operator-based aggregation method is proposed to make a final decision. The methodology is illustrated by a numerical example.
