Abstract

A model orographiy is constructed for a large portion of the Alpine region with nearly equidistant zonal and meridional resolution (3.3 kin). Major valleys and massifs, which tend to be smeared out by averaging a high resolution database, are manually reconstructed. A comparison along a crosssection over the crest line of the Eastern Alps in both physical and Fourier space reveals the characteristics of different model resolutions.
