The task of the decision support in the case of a radiation accident is to provide up-to-date information on the radiation situation, prognosis of its future evolution and possible conse- quences. The reliability of predictions can be significantly improved using data assimilation, which refers to a group of mathematical methods allowing an efficient combination of ob- served data with a numerical model. The concerns application of the advanced data assimilation methods in the field of radiation protection. We focus on assessment of off-site consequences in the case of a radiation accident when radionuclides are released into the environment. In this report we present a comprehensive review of data assimilation evaluated for pur- poses of inclusion into the data assimilation and decision support system ASIM developed within the grant project VG20102013018 provided by the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic.
