The technique for infrared and microwave space atmospheric sounding with the ATOVS instrument is discussed. The sounding results are vertical profiles of the atmosphere. A zenith tropospheric delay was estimated from the profiles and with the Saastamoinen and Hopfield delay models that use ground-based measurements. Shifts of the model-derived estimations are −0.0186 m for the Saastamoinen model and −0.0135 m for the Hopfield model during the all 2012. The results are valid for Krasnoyarsk (midlatitudes of Siberia).
