Russian term or phrase: дневная поверхность (in this context)
Погребенная эрозийная поверхность фундамента и дневная поверхность покровныx отложений имеют в среднем уклон 10 м на 1 км в северо-северо-восточном направлении.

It would appear to mean the diurnal (or daytime) surface. But why should the time of day or night affect the inclination of the surface?

English translation:(daytime) surface
Explanation:
"Дневная поверхность" - просто название термина в русском геологическом языке. На английский я обычно перевожу словом surface. Можете посмотреть другие варианты здесь, особенно в разделе "Геология"

Notes to answerer
Asker: That looks likely. Multitran also gives "day surface" but I can find no relevant example of it. I'll leave the question open for a while.

agree  Jack Slep: Just simply surface, the word obviously means aboveground.//Does it disappear at nighttime!?
