ABSTRACT
One option for monitoring solutions in tanks as a complement to nuclear materials accounting is to identify and monitor activities in each tank for consistency with historical behavior. This option requires locating change points or "event marking." This paper describes our experiences using both real and simulated tank data to quantify the errors associated with imperfect marking of start and stop times of key tank events such as shipments and receipts.
