a. The dimensional data used to establish the position, elevations, scale, and orientation of the detail of a map and that are responsible for the interpretations placed on a map. AGI
b. A section or reach of an open channel in which natural or artificial conditions make the water level above it a stable index of discharge. It may be either complete (i.e., water-surface elevation above the control is completely independent of downstream water-level fluctuations) or partial; it may also shift. AGI
c. That waterway cross section that is the bottleneck for a given flow and determines the energy head required to produce the flow. In an open channel, it is the point at which flow is at critical depth; in a closed conduit, it is the point at which hydrostatic pressure and cross-sectional area of flow are definitely fixed, except where the flow is limited at some other point by a hydrostatic pressure equal to the greatest vacuum that can be maintained unbroken at that point. AGI
d. Any of the factors determining the nature of geologic formations at a given place. Webster 3rd
e. In geology, the background and the quantity of data that are responsible for the interpretation placed on a map or a cross section. AGI
f. An attempt to guide a borehole to follow a predetermined course through the use of wedges or by manipulation of the drill string. Long
