Dogleg Severity (DLS)

This is a measure of the rate of change of direction of the wellpath. Usually this is measured in (1) degrees per 100 feet; (2) degrees per 30 meters; (3) degrees per 30 feet; and/or (4) degrees per 10 meters. The interval usually reflects the spacing in a directional survey station.
