Atmospheric boundary-layer modeling over complex terrain (ASTER)

ASTER is a collaborative research project between the University of Innsbruck, the University of Trento, and the University of Bolzano funded by the EGTC European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino.

The objective is to evaluate the performance of turbulence and land surface parameterizations in a numerical weather prediction model over complex Alpine terrain and to quantify the model's sensitivity to potential errors in these parameterizations.

ASTER is a partner project of the TEAMx research programme.
