Observations of Schumann resonances provide valuable information about world thunderstorm activity, global climatic changes and properties of the upper dissipative boundary layer of the Earth - Ionosphere cavity. A high latitude Schumann resonance station at Spitsbergen is of great importance from more points of view. The station is situated in the longitudinal range of Africa which has the most intense lightning activity in the world. Fine variations of the African source are monitored from this polar site. A Schumann resonance station in Hornsund has good view to the other tropical regions (South America, Maritime Continent and Asia). A high latitude the station is also important from the point of view of extraterrestrial influences (space weather).
