Displacements of the Earth’s surface caused by tidal and non-tidal loading forces are relevant in high-precision space geodesy. Some of the corrections are recommended by the international scientific community to be applied at the observation level, e.g., ocean tidal loading (OTL) and atmospheric tidal loading (ATL). Non-tidal displacement corrections are in general recommended not to be applied in the products of the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service, in particular… 
Impact of the Atmospheric Non-tidal Pressure Loading on Global Geodetic Parameters Based on Satellite Laser Ranging to GNSS
TLDR
Based on the ANTL model applied on SLR observations to GNSS, the values of the Blue-Sky effect are determined and the impact of the omission of ANTL corrections on geodetic parameters, i.e., earth rotation parameters, geocenter motion, precise GNSS orbits, as well as on the global SLR network is investigated.
Correcting GPS measurements for non-tidal loading
Non-tidal loading (NTL) deforms the earth’s surface, adding variability to the coordinates of geodetic sites. Yet, according to the IERS Conventions, there are no recommended surface-mass change

Evaluation of the impact of atmospheric pressure loading modeling on GNSS data analysis
TLDR
The model by Petrov and Boy (2004) is shown to meet the expectations concerning the order of magnitude of the effect at individual stations within the uncertainty given by the GNSS data processing and within the limitations due to the model itself.
