C. Myers, "Quantitative Methodology for Assessing State Level Nuclear Security Measures," Ph.D. Dissertation, Nuclear Engineering, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX (2012).


The international community faces a growing threat from nuclear terrorism. The complexity of the threats of nuclear terrorism, the variety of nuclear security measures that States can devote resources towards to address the threats, and the limited resources States have to invest in these nuclear security measures make it imperative that resources are applied in the most effective way possible. In this dissertation, we develop a quantitative, risk-based methodology that States can employ to gain a better understanding of the nuclear threat they face, assist them in determining what nuclear security measures they should invest in, and can facilitate communication to stake-holders to request and justify investment in these measures.
