Abstract:

The study analyzes 115 stations in the World Data Bank for Tidal Gravity. Under this study, 76 of these stations have been established in the equatorial and tropical regions as well as the Southern Hemisphere. This broad coverage has allowed, for the first time, for experimental determination of the Love numbers foreseen by Love 1911 and confirmed by Wahr 1981. This effect results from the flattening of the Earth and from the Coriolis force. Keywords include Gravity, Earth Tides, Coriolis Force, and Gravimeter.
