    Default Can anyone shed some light in this direction, please?


    Can anyone enlighten me as to what would the best translation for the word buzamiento be?
    context:

    ...con buzamientos entre 10 y 15 grados.

    I would use "fluctuation" or "dipping": "...fluctuating between 10 and 15 degrees". Hope it helps!
