Abstract [en]

The measurement of elemental abundances of Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars is a highly challenging task that so far has not been solved in a satisfactory way. We report here on our efforts to confront predictions from hydrostatic and dynamical model atmospheres with observational results based on high-resolution spectra of variable and non-variable giants in the globular cluster 47 Tuc. Our goal is to estimate the impact of atmospheric dynamics on the abundance determination.
