    When calculating surface rasters for Aspect and Slope the output is in DEGREES.  In order to do Trig functions on that resulting raster it must be converted to Radians.  I understand the need for the software to do math in radians, but I don't know any humans that use radians as a normal part of their work.

    In Model Builder the dialog could have a check box that indicates if the source raster is 'Degrees' or 'Radians'.
