1. n. [Formation Evaluation]

The inversion of resistivity logs with differing depths of investigation into a model of the formation invasion profile. For dual induction and dual-laterolog tools, this was done graphically with a tornado chart and assuming a step profile. Array tools have built-in inversion algorithms, and several formation models into which the data can be inverted.
