Zenith wet delay estimates derived from the analysis of GPS observations are used for operative weather forecasting and climate-change modelling. On the basis of these estimates, besieged water vapor values are determined for meteorology needs. We give some values of besieged water vapor which are derived from GNSS data processing and from results of aerologic sounding of the atmosphere.
