Amplitudes of spectral geomagnetic field components and signal/noise ratios are estimated at frequencies of lunar and solar tides based on the data registered at the experimental site of Vladimir State University (VlSU) and Japanese geomagnetic stations Kakioka (1913–2006) and Memambetsu (1950–1999). The influence of thermal solar tides S1, S2, S3, and S4 and lunar gravitational tides O1, M2, and N2 on the geomagnetic field of the surface layer of the atmosphere is reliably distinguished.
