Objective

The proposed work attempts to introduce a practical improvement in the real time on-line decision support system (RODOS) by developing and integrating a data assimilation capability for off-site nuclear emergency management. This project covers three areas of interest for data assimilation : in the early phase, deposition and food chain and in the hydrological model chain. It is expected that the outcome of this R&D work will result in a clear improvement on the assessment of the radiological impact of an accidental release of radioactivity in both terrestrial and aquatic environments. It is expected that the use of a common data assimilation approach, the Kalman filter, will result in a coherent and harmonised methodology that will increase the acceptability of the RODOS system by European Emergency Response Centres and this will facilitate its implementation throughout Europe.
