We have conducted observations with the aid of a seismo-tiltmeter station, which is based
on the Ostrovsky pendulum and installed at the Geodynamic Observatory Cueva de los Verdes at
Lanzarote Island since 1995. In this station the signal is separated into two frequency bands – tidal tilts
(from 0 to 5 mHz) and ground oscillations in the frequency range of free Earth’s normal modes (from 0.2
to 5 mHz). The later band, called accelerometer channel, has additional amplification. We analyzed the
background records in the frequency range of Earth’s free oscillations from August 2000 to September
2001, as well as, Earth’s normal modes after strong earthquakes. We found several distinctive persistent
peaks in the spectra of background oscillations. Both amplitudes of distinguished peaks and noises have
seasonal variations. We found that spectra of background oscillations are different in the frequency
interval between 1.4 and 2.5 mHz for North- South and East-West components.
