Abstract : A computerized data acquisition system for measuring bed profiles of the Missouri River is described. The system incorporates an IBM 1801 Digital Computer and Bludworth sounder which communicate via a magnetic tape recorder and various other components to provide punched cards with numbers representing the depth for each sounding. Accuracy and resolution are sufficient for determining the statistical properties of the bed profiles. (Author)
