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 along the axis of the tool. The orientation is combined with relatively long spacings to give deeper penetration, and hence less effect of mudcake or rugosity.
