The Scripps data acquisition system (SAS), as described in Lowe et al. (1973), was used in the first two field experiments. Some important modifications were made to adapt that system to the specific requirements of the Santa Barbara experiment. The basic system consists of six pulse code modulated (PCM) encoders connected via very high frequency (VHF) radio-telemetry links or coaxial cable to a receiving/recording station where the signals were recorded with a time code on a tape deck. Because of an increase in data channels at Santa Barbara, four of the six encoders were expanded from fifteen data channels to thirty-one. This gave the total system a capacity of 154 channels of data.
