Short summary
This paper gives a detailed description of the model theory of the obstacle-resolving microscale meteorological model MITRAS version 2. Detailed descriptions of the model equations and their formulations and approximations are presented. Also, detailed parameterizations of buildings, wind turbines, and vegetation in the model are introduced. Some example applications of the model are shown to demonstrate the model capacities and potential.
