2. n. [Formation Evaluation]

The point on a logging tool at which it is considered the logging measurement is made. It is the center of the vertical response, or in some cases an alternative, more suitable point. For measurements that must be recorded over a significant time period, there is a difference between the static and dynamic measure point, known as the lag.
