tendency b / trend b

Explanation:
I'm not sure if this is of help, but "傾き" in my Nelson's Japanese Character Dictionary is defined as per the below and in this exact order...(The word "bias" is also there at the end, but I'm going with tendency/trend since the word "bias" in katakana (バイアス) is already being used:

slope, inclination, list; tendency, trend; bent; disposition, bias.

- I tried to access this PDF file but it is damaged. (However it mentions "moisture value bias adjustment."
[PDF]
Moisture Tester & Inspection Instruments for Agricultural Use ...
File Format: PDF/Adobe Acrobat - Quick View
Moisture value bias adjustment (–9.9 to +9.9%), aver- age value,Upper limit alarm, ..... Unit water estimation, Water/cement ratio estima- ...

- This sentence was with a moisture meter but for testing moisture in grains:
An integrated bias adjustment may be used to improve correlation with local standards.

- It seems to be an adjustment that is made/calculated in accordance with surroundings (since the surroundings differ with each site)
