Abstract. Here we study the dynamic properties of EUV spicules seen at the solar limb. The selected data were
obtained as time series in polar coronal holes by SUMER/SoHO. The short exposure time and the almost fixed
position of the spectrometer's slit allow the analysis of spicule properties such as occurrence, lifetime and Doppler
velocity. Our data reveal that spicules occur repeatedly at the same location with a birth rate of around 0.16/min
as estimated at 10 above the limb and a lifetime ranging from 15 down to 3 minutes. We are able to see some
