Abstract : The progress made during the second year of the programme is described. The 3 gravimeter conversions and systems construction are nearly complete. A six month tidal gravity experiment was undertaken using E.T.1o. and preliminary results from this experiment are described. Calculations of Indian Ocean tidal loading at various sites around the ocean have been made and from these results, together with a visit to India and Pakistan, initial sites for the primary observation programme have been selected. In addition a tidal prediction software package is described which will have a wide range of applications in geodynamics measurements which require tidal corrections accurate to + or - 0.5 cm or + or - 1 microgal.
