recorded data

1. n. [Formation Evaluation]
With reference to measurements-while-drilling (MWD), the data recorded by the logging tools and stored in a downhole electronic memory. These data are subsequently retrieved when the tools are brought to surface. Recorded data are distinct from real-time data. Depending on the time between trips, the amount of data storage may affect the number of channels recorded, the sample interval, or both.
