Abstract Natural deposits of radioactive elements can provide important and very useful information for safety evaluation of radioactive waste repositories. The information is especially helpful for public communication. However, a simple comparison between the calculated fluxes and concentrations in a proposed repository and those natural ones can be ambiguous. This ambiguity arises from high complexity, imprecise knowledge, different data formats and units. This work suggests the use of a methodology, based on fuzzy logic tools, to handle this ambiguous information. A case study is presented as an example.
