1. The geometry-dependent weighting factor for determining how the conductivities of each medium in the vicinity of sonde affect apparent-conductivity measurements; especially used with the induction log. 2. A numerical factor used to multiply a measured voltage-to-current ratio to give apparent resistivity (q.v.). Geometric factor is dependent on the type of electrode array and spacing used. Also called geometric constant, array factor, or form factor.
