Summary:Students often have problems visualising the difference between true and apparent dip. This paper prism might be useful. The model shows both dip and strike sections, with true dip and horizontal beds respectively, together with a face showing an apparent dip. Why not try to measure the dips concerned and plot them on a stereonet!
