Abstract: We study the process of meteoroid interaction with the Earth's atmosphere, in particular, the effect of ablation. An ablation model is used, where mass loss of a meteoroid is determined using the saturated vapor pressure of the assumed meteoroid's substance. An automated method is suggested, where we estimate the physical parameters of a meteoroid by comparing data from observations and models of known parameters. Model constraints and features of the models are discussed.
