We consider a possibility of reconstructing smoothed humidity profiles in the troposphere from the data on integral water vapor content and near-ground humidity value. Two techniques for reconstructing have been compared at the constant and variable index of the exponential profile. The errors in reconstructing, as well as the peculiarities of the humidity stratification over West Siberian region (city of Tomsk) and Canary Islands have been assessed from the results of comparison with radiosonde data. The variability of the vertical profile in different geophysical conditions have been considered.
