We present synthetic spectra around maximum for the type II supernova SN 2003Z, which was first detected on January 29.7 2003. Comparison with observed spectra aim at the determination of physical parameters for SN 2003Z. Synthetic spectra are calculated with our stellar atmosphere code PHOENIX. It solves the special relativistic equation of radiative transfer, including large NLTE-calculations and line blanketing by design, in 1-dimensional spherical symmetry. The observed spectra were

The spectra were taken on Feb. 4, 5, 9, and 11, 2003. The physical parameters of the models give the luminosities, a range of possible velocity profiles for the SN, an estimate of the colour excess, and the observed metalicity.
