Appendix I, Continued SEMIDIAMETER.—The  radius  of  a  closed figure.  Half  the  angle  at  the  observer subtended  by  the  visible  disk  of  a  celestial body. SET.—The  direction  toward  which  a current  flows. SEXTANT.—A   double-reflecting instrument  for  measuring  angles,  primarily altitudes  of  celestial  bodies. SHORAN.—A  precision  electronic  position fixing  system  using  a  pulse  transmitter  and receiver  and  two  transponder  beacons  at fixed  points. SIDEREAL   HOUR   ANGLE.—Angular distance  west  of  the  vernal  equinox;  the  arc of  the  celestial  equator  or  the  angle  at  the celestial  pole  between  the  hour  circle  of the  vernal  equinox  and  the  hour  circle  of  a point  on  the  celestial  sphere,  measured westward  from  the  hour  circle  of  the  vernal equinox  through  360°. SIDEREAL  TIME.—Time  based  upon  the rotation  of  Earth  relative  to  the  vernal equinox. SKY  WAVE.—An  indirect  radio  wave  that travels  from  the  transmitting  antenna  into the  sky,  where  the  ionosphere  bends  it back  toward  the  Earth. SLACK  WATER.—The  condition  when the  speed  of  a  tidal  current  is  zero, especially  the  momentary  condition  zero speed  when  a  reversing  current  changes direction. SOLAR  TIME.—Time  based  upon  the rotation  of  Earth  relative  to  the  Sun. SOUNDING.—Measured  or  charted  depth of  water  or  the  measurement  of  such  depth. SPEED  OF  RELATIVE MOVEMENT.—Speed  relative  to  a reference  point  itself  usually  in  motion. SPRING  TIDES.—The  tides  occurring  near the  times  of  full  moon  and  new  moon when  the  range  of  tide  tends  to  increase. STADIMETER.—An  instrument  for determining  the  distance  to  an  object  of known  height  by  measuring  the  angle subtended  at  the  observer  by  the  object. STAND.—The  condition  at  high  or  low tide  when  there  is  no  change  in  the  height of the water. STAR  FINDER.—A  device  to  facilitate  the identification of stars. STATUTE  MILE.—A  unit  of  distance equal to 5,280 feet. STRATOCUMULUS.—Low   clouds   (mean upper  level  below  6,550  feet),  composed  of a  layer  or  patches  of  globular  masses  or rolls. STRATUS.—A  low  cloud  (mean  upper level  below  6,550  feet)  in  a  uniform  layer. TANGENT.—The  ratio  of  the  side opposite  an  acute  angle  of  a  plane  right triangle  to  the  shorter  side  adjacent  to  the same  angle.  A  straight  line,  curve,  or surface  touching  a  curve  or  surface  at  one point. TELESCOPIC  ALIDADE.—A  device  used with  a  gyro  repeater  for  taking  bearings. AI-11
