In this paper, we prove the existence and uniqueness of the entropy solution for a first-order stochastic conservation law with a multiplicative source term involving a (Formula presented.) -Brownian motion. After having defined a measure-valued weak entropy solution of the stochastic conservation law, we present the Kato inequality, and as a corollary, we deduce the uniqueness of the measure-valued weak entropy solution, which coincides with the unique weak entropy solution of the problem. The Kato inequality is proved by a doubling of variables method; to that purpose, we prove the existence and the uniqueness of the strong solution of an associated stochastic nonlinear parabolic problem by means of an implicit time discretization scheme; we also prove its convergence to a measure-valued entropy solution of the stochastic conservation law, which proves the existence of the measure-valued entropy solution.
