formation exposure time

1. n. [Formation Evaluation]
The time that has elapsed between the bit first penetrating a formation and a log being recorded opposite the formation. In logging-while-drilling operations, this time is different for each log, since it depends on the drilling rate and the distance between the bit and the particular logging sensor.
