1. The tendency of alternating currents to flow near the surface of a conductor. 2. A reduction in apparent conductivity. The diffusion of an electromagnetic wave through a conductive formation results in a phase shift. 3. In logging, the frequency-dependent depth resolution. To compare different depth curves, this effect is often filtered out (skin-effect correction). See skin depth.
