How was this ceiling constructed? And what are these "lines" running in it for?

Found in a hotel. It either has plaster or some other material over the whole thing with a popcorn texture. There are dips/lines running in it the whole way across. They're about 1/2-3/4" deep. The question my friends and I want answered is: is there any reason for these lines, or are they just decorative? Is that where the support structure is and there is some necessity for the dip in the plaster (or whatever it is)?
