resistive invasion

1. n. [Formation Evaluation]
A situation in which the resistivity of the flushed zone is greater than the resistivity of the undisturbed zone. Such a setting generally favors the use of induction devices, which respond to conductivity, rather than electrode resistivity devices (laterologs, ring resistivity), which respond to resistivity.
