Appendix I, Continued DEPTH-SOUNDING   SONAR.—A   direct- reading  device  for  determining  the  depth  of water  in  fathoms  or  other  units  by reflecting  sonic  or  ultrasonic  waves  from the ocean bottom. DEVIATION.—The  angle  between  the magnetic  meridian  and  the  axis  of  a compass  card  expressed  in  degrees  east  or west to indicate the direction in which the northern  end  of  the  compass  card  is  offset from  magnetic  north. DEW   POINT.—he   temperature   to   which air  must  be  cooled  at  constant  pressure  and constant  water  vapor  content  to  reach saturation. DIP.—Lowering  a  flag  part  way  in  salute or  in  answer  and  hoisting  it  again.  A  flag is "at the dip" when it is flown at about two-thirds  the  height  of  the  halyards. DIRECTION  OF  RELATIVE MOVEMENT.—The  direction  of  motion relative  to  a  reference  point,  itself  usually in motion. DIURNAL.—Having  a  period  of,  occurring in, or related to a day. DIVIDERS.—An  instrument  consisting  in its  simple  form  of  two  pointed  legs  joined by  a  pivot  and  used  principally  for measuring  distances  or  coordinates. DOPPLER.—The  observed  change  of frequency of a wave caused by a time rate of change of the effective distance traveled by the wave between the source and the point of observation. DRESSING  LINES.—The  lines  used  in dressing ship. DRESSING  SHIP.—A  display  of  national colors  at  all  mastheads  and  the  flagstaff. (Full  dressing  ship  requires,  in  addition,  a rainbow  of  flags  from  bow  to  stem  over the  mastheads.) DRIFT.—The  leeway  of  a  vessel  or amount of set of a tide or current; the spare end of a rope. EBB.—Tidal  current  moving  away  from land or down a tidal stream. ELECTROMAGNETIC.—Having   both magnetic and electric properties. ELECTRONIC NAVIGATION.—Navigation  by  means  of electronic equipment. EQUATOR.—The  primary  great  circle  of Earth,  or  a  similar  body,  perpendicular  to the polar axis. ESTIMATED  POSITION.—The  most probable  position  of  a  craft  determined from  incomplete  data  or  data  of questionable accuracy. FAHRENHEIT TEMPERATURE.—Temperature   based upon a scale in which, under standard atmospheric  pressure,  water  freezes  at  32° and boils at 212°. FATHOM.—A  unit  of  length  equal  to  6 feet.
