Short summary
In this study we explore a new way to model sub-grid turbulence using particle systems. The ability of particle systems to model small-scale turbulence is evaluated using high-resolution numerical simulations performed with the atmospheric model Meso-NH. The study shows that the particle system is able to reproduce much finer turbulent structures than the high-resolution simulations. It also provides an estimate of the effective spatial and temporal resolution of the numerical models.
