Dikes are sheet intrusions that cut across layers, or into an unlayered mass. In scientific terms, a sill is a tabular concordant body intruded along bedding planes . . Variations in final shapes and internal geometry of diapiric.

Dike: Dike, in geology, tabular or sheetlike igneous body that is often oriented vertically or steeply inclined to bedding of preexisting intruded rocks; similar bodies oriented parallel to the bedding of the enclosing rocks are called sills.
