A system for the acquisition and recording of seismic data at a central location from several widely scattered detector sites on land is described. The system uses leased telephone lines and commercially available carrier equipment. The detectors and all associated equipment are described. This equipment was assembled to detect seismic waves from a series of large explosive shots conducted by the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism of the carnegie Institution of Washington, The University of Wisconsin, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution during July of 1961.
