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 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.
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 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 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.
Dual In-Line package. Consists of a rectangular plastic or ceramic block which contains a chip. Connected to the chip, and protruding from the two long sides of the block, are formed metal leads for connection to a circuit board. The name of the package comes from these dual rows of leads. There are typically 4 to 68 leads (I/O's) on a DIP package; more than 75% of DIP devices built have 14 to 16 pins.
A form of DRAM component packaging. DIPs can be installed either in sockets or permanently soldered into holes extending into the surface of the printed circuit board. The DIP package was extremely popular when it was common for memory to be installed directly on a computer's motherboard.
Dissemination Information Package An external representation of an object exported from the Digital Preservation Repository, optionally including an Archival Information Package, Submission Information Package, and object metadata.
Dual inline package. A package for electronic components that is suited for automated assembly into printed circuit boards. The DIP is characterized by two rows of external connecting terminals or pins, which are inserted into the holes of the printed circuit board.
(Dual In line Package) A DRAM component packaging. DIPs can be installed in sockets or permanently soldered into holes on the printed circuit board. The DIP package was extremely popular when memory was installed directly on the motherboard.
dual in-line package. A standard housing constructed of hard plastic commonly used to hold an integrated circuit. The circuit's leads are connected to two parallel rows of pins designed to fit snugly into a socket; these pins may also be soldered directly to a printed -circuit board.
Acronym for dual in-line package. A circuit board, such as a system board or expansion card, may contain DIP switches for configuring the circuit board. DIP switches are always toggle switches, with an ON position and an OFF position.
"Dual Inline Package"; This is an electronic component found on PCB's that contains tiny switches that are manipulable by the game owner. Commonly used to set free/coin play, difficulty, cocktail mode, and other settings.
Dual In-Line Package. Standard format for integrated circuits manufacturing, in which silicon-engraved microcircuits are embedded in a rectangular plastic or ceramic container, and connected on each long side of the circuit through pins directed towards the bottom.
Dual In Line Package - an older style integrated circuit package with two parallel rows of pins designed to be inserted through holes in a printed circuit board. DIPs still account for approximately 13% of Package types shipped on a unit shipment basis. The use of DIPs is declining.
1. An immersion of relatively short duration of a textile in a liquid. 2. The depth of liquid in the inner cylinder of a rotary washing machine. 3. A laboratory dyeing, usually to develop a dye formula.
1. When looking at a frequency graph, a dip is a section of the graph that looks like a valley or a depression in the otherwise flat line. The mid-range EQ control on a mixer input channel creates a dip in the frequency response curve when you turn the knob counter-clockwise. 2. A sauce served with chips see also salsa
A dipping sauce or dip is a common condiment for many types of food. Dips are used to add flavour to a food, such as pita bread, crackers, cut-up raw vegetables, seafood, cubed pieces of meat and cheese, potato chips, or falafel. Unlike other sauces, instead of applying the sauce to the food, the food is typically put into, or dipped, into the dipping sauce (hence the name).
a sudden sharp decrease in some quantity; "a drop of 57 points on the Dow Jones index"; "there was a drop in pressure in the pulmonary artery"; "a dip in prices"; "when that became known the price of their stock went into free fall"
Used in the context of general equities. Slight drop in securities prices after a sustained uptrend. Analysts often advise investors to buy on dips, meaning buy when a price is momentarily weak. See correction.
Drug Intervention Programme. A programme that brings together a range of professionals in the criminal justice system who work with drug-using offenders and offer them rapid access to the treatment and support they need.
Criminal justice intervention programme The aim of the Home Office-led criminal justice interventions programme is to integrate drug treatment services for offenders in police stations, in courts and in the community. Crucially, it will improve the co-ordination of aftercare for prisoners following their release. DIP was introduced in 25 DAT areas in 2003/04 and an additional 22 areas in April 2004.
Drug Intervention Programme The programme is a major part of the measures in the Updated Drug Strategy for reducing drug-related crime. It aims to take advantage of opportunities within the criminal justice system for accessing drug-misusing offenders – many of whom are difficult to access by other approaches – and moving them into treatment, away from drug use and crime.
A gymnastic exercise on the parallel bars in which the performer, resting on his hands, lets his arms bend and his body sink until his chin is level with the bars, and then raises himself by straightening his arms.
Dip, sometimes called snuff, is a form of smokeless tobacco usually held inside the mouth. When dip mixes with saliva, nicotine and other chemicals are released and absorbed through the mucous membranes of the mouth.
In Catalan myth, Dip is an evil, black, hairy dog, an emissary of the Devil, who sucks people's blood. Like other figures associated with demons in Catalan myth, he is lame in one leg. Dip is pictured on the escutcheon of Pratdip.
A slight decline in securities prices followed by a rise. Omitted if business is poor or if the directors determine to withhold earnings to invest in plants and equipment. Sometimes a company will pay a dividend out of past earnings even if it is not currently operating at a profit.
Document Image Processing The electronic indexing and storage of images of documents, usually taken from paper via a scanner. DIP documents cannot be understood, re-used or processed, except by the human eye.
A number of similar chemicals are used in processing seafoods to help retain moisture, and sometimes to improve the appearance by whitening. The use of dips is long established and so far as is known, harmless. It is common in other parts of the food industry.
