Abstract : Some partial-tides in the horizontal earth-tide-spectrum can synchronously in both main-direction practically only be measured in the proximity of the poles. For vertical component the fort-nightly moon-wave there reaches one maximum which, with modern technics, seems possible to be measured. The aim of an international expedition to Spitzbergen ( =78 degrees N) in 1969/70 was the observation of these waves. It is reported about the performance of the research work and some ideas are given on the results of measurements and the first results of harmonic analysis. (Author)
