Appendix I, Continued COMMISSION   PENNANT.—Narrow   red, white,  and  blue  pennant  with  seven  stars, flown  at  the  main-truck  of  a  ship  in commission. COMPASS.—An  instrument  for determining  courses  steered  and  bearings by  indicating  the  magnetic  or  true  north and the ship’s head. COMPASS  HEADING.—A  heading relative  to  compass  north. COMPASS  POINTS.—The  32  divisions  of a  compass  at  intervals  of  11  1/4°. COMPUTED   ALTITUDE.—Altitude   of the  center  of  a  celestial  body  above  the celestial  horizon  at  a  given  time  and  place as  determined  by  computation,  table, mechanical  device,  or  graphics. CONSOL.—An  electronic  navigational system  providing  a  number  of  rotating equisignal  zones  that  permit  determination of  bearings  from  a  transmitting  station  by counting  a  series  of  dots  and  dashes  and referring  to  a  table  or  special  chart. CONTOUR.—A  line  connecting  points  of equal  elevation  or  equal  depth. CUMULONIMBUS.—A  massive  cloud with  great  vertical  development,  the summits  of  which  rise  in  the  form  of mountains  or  towers,  the  upper  parts  often spreading out in the form of an anvil. CUMULUS.—A  dense  cloud  with  vertical development,  having  a  horizontal  base  and dome-shaped  upper  surface,  exhibiting protuberances. CURRENT.—Water  in  essentially horizontal  motion.  A  hypothetical horizontal  motion  of  such  set  and  drift  as to  account  for  the  difference  between  a dead-reckoning  position  and  a  fix  at  the same time. DAY  BEACON.—An  unlighted  beacon. DEAD   RECKONING.—Determination   of position  by  advancing  a  previous  position for  courses  and  distances. DECCA.—An  electronic  navigational system  by  which  hyperbolic  lines  of position  are  determined  by  measuring  the phase  difference  of  synchronized continuous  wave  signals. DECLINATION.—Angular  distance  north or  south  of  the  celestial  equator  and  a  point on  the  celestial  sphere,  measured northward  or  southward  from  the  celestial equator  through  90°,  and  labeled  N  or  S  to indicate  the  direction  of  measurement. DEGAUSSING.—Neutralization  of  the strength  of  the  magnetic  field  of  a  vessel by  means  of  suitably  arranged  electric  coils permanently  installed  in  the  vessel. DEGREE.—A  unit  of  circular  measure equal to 1/360th of a circle. DEPTH.—Vertical  distance  from  a  given water level to the bottom. DEPTH  OF  WATER.—The  vertical distance  from  the  surface  of  the  water  to the bottom. AI-3
