Dip orientation nomenclature

Individual dips are referenced in degrees using the convention of dip/dip azimuth.  For example, 10°/270° indicates a dip of 10° (measured from the horizontal) towards 270° (referenced clockwise from True North).  Numerical calculations involving dips often require conversion to radians, and then back into degrees at the end of the calculation.
