  Tune spectra measurements are routinely performed in most synchrotrons. At high intensity and low energies (i.e. γ≈1), space charge effects can significantly modify the tune spectra in comparison to the classical low intensity spectra. Systematic studies were performed at GSI SIS-18 to observe these characteristic modifications, mainly resulting from the shift of the head-tail modes in direct dependence of beam intensity and synchrotron tune frequency. In this contribution, an interpretation of the tune spectra modification based on quasi-analytical models and numerical simulations will be presented. Extraction of elusive beam parameters such as incoherent tune shift, machine impedances, chromaticity, etc. from the spectra will be demonstrated. Further, the applications and relevance of these results for other synchrotrons will be discussed.
