To incline downward from the plane of the horizon; as, strata of rock dip.
Inclination downward; direction below a horizontal line; slope; pitch.
The angle of inclination of a mineral deposit. The true dip is always measured in a vertical plane perpendicular to the strike.
An angle giving the orientatio n of a planar feature such as bedding or a fault plane; it is the acute angle measured between the planar feature and the horizontal. It is measure perpendicular to the strike direction.
The steepest line of fall on a horizontal measured plane. It is the path a marble would follow as it rolled down the plane's surface. It is unidirectional and always perpendicular to strike.
(4) the angle at which a structure or rock bed is inclined from the horizontal as measured at right angles to the strike and in the vertical plane.
the amount and direction of tilt of a geologic surface from horizontal, measured in degrees. The geologic surface usually is a layered rock unit or a fault plane.
The angle that a rock unit, fault or other rock structure makes with a horizontal plane. Expressed as the angular difference between the horizontal plane and the structure. The angle is measured in a plane perpendicular to the strike of the rock structure.
The angle formed by the inclined plane of a geological structure and the horizontal plane of the Earth's surface.
The angle between the horizontal plane and a structural surface (such as a bedding plane, a joint, a fault, foliation, or other planar features).
The inclination to the horizontal of any stratum of earth or rock.
(physics) the angle that a magnetic needle makes with the plane of the horizon
appear to move downward; "The sun dipped below the horizon"; "The setting sun sank below the tree line"
slope downwards; "Our property dips towards the river"
(D). The angular difference between the geometrically true and the apparent or visual horizon.
the angle a rock bed makes with the horizon; water dropped on a bed will run in the direction of the dip
A measure of the angle between the flat horizon and the slope of a sedimentary layer, fault plane, metamorphic foliation, or other geologic structure.
Angle of inclination a fault stratum makes with the horizontal plane. See Strike.
The angle between the horizontal and a sloping surface such as a bedding plane; dip is measured perpendicular to strike direction.
The angle that rock strata make with a horizontal surface, measured at right angles to the strike.
the angle of incline from horizontal of a planar feature, such as an orebody
an undesirable downward movement of the spine and head during the swing. Example: He had a pronounced dip in his downswing and as a result frequently shanked the ball.
Refers to the angle at which the bedrock strata are inclined from the horizontal. Dip on bedrock surfaces may be caused by forces that bend the rock mass or by a variety of mechanisms active when sediments that make up the rock were accumulating.
the angle that a refractor or reflector makes with the horizontal. Also, the angle of inclination of a geologic layer or sedimentary bed.
the inclination of a geologic structure (bed, vein, fault, etc.) from the horizontal; dip is always measured downwards at right angles to the strike.
The angle at which a vein, structure or rock bed is inclined from the horizontal as measured at right angles to the strike, also, the angle at which a drill hole is inclined, measured from the horizontal.
The inclination from the horizontal of the to surface of a geological structure. A Dip Meter indicates dip relative to a well bore.
The maximum angle that a structural surface, such as layering in a rock or a fault makes with the horizontal, measured in the vertical plane perpendicular to the strike.
angle made to the horizontal by a bedding plane
The angle that a planar geologic surface (for example, a fault) is inclined from the horizontal.
The maximum angle of inclination downward that a vein or bed makes with a horizontal plane.
the angle that a bedding plane or fault makes with the horizontal when measured perpendicular to the strike of the bedding plane or fault.
the angle of the plan of a bed relative to the horizontal.
The angle that a structural surface (e.g., a bedding or fault plane) makes with the horizontal, measured perpendicular to the strike of the structure.
The angle by which a rock layer or fault plane deviates from the horizontal. The angle is measured in a plane perpendicular to the strike.
Inclination of a geological feature/rock from the horizontal (perpendicular to strike);
The angle between a geologic surface -- for example, a fault plane -- and the horizontal. The direction of dip can be thought of as the direction a ball, if placed upon the tilted surface, would roll. Thus, a ball placed on a north-dipping fault plane would roll northward. The dip of a surface is always perpendicular to the strike of that surface.
a downward slope of a stratum or vein. [AHDOS
The maximum angle by which a stratum or other planar feature deviates from the horizontal. The angle is measured in a plane perpendicular to the strike.
Same as inclination.
