A method of column water vapor reconstruction from photometric measurements of direct solar radiation is presented. The effect of spectroscopic errors on the accuracy of reconstructing the columnar water vapor amount is estimated. Different methods for processing the data of observations are discussed. The results on the reconstructed column water vapor are compared with the data obtained with a CE-318 photometer that is being operated at the IAO SB RAS as a part of AERONET project.
