Abstract
Here we report the results of a new analysis of the data obtained in the fr amework of an experiment consisting of the measurement of the gravitational signal induced by varying the water mass of a lake. A more precise calibra tion of the superconducting gravimeter used in the experiment has been perf ormed with the use of an absolute instrument; furthermore, a knowledge of t he absolute amplitude of the solid Earth tides of the station has been impr oved. The result of this analysis shows an agreement between data and Newto nian theory to within a 0.17% level.
