1. n. [Formation Evaluation]

A particular arrangement of transmitters and receivers used in the electromagnetic propagation measurement in which the dipoles used as sensors are oriented perpendicular to the axis of the tool. The orientation is combined with relatively short spacings to give a significant signal even in the most attenuative environments, such as salty muds.
