Abstract: 

In the article the results of the precision analysis of the geopotential models, collected by the scientific community and recommended for geodynamic programs is presented. EIGEN model line is analysed too with the purpose to understand how the data from new space missions influences the models precision

Keywords: geodynamic models, gravitation field, precision estimates
