Definitions for "exposure"
The exposing of a sensitized plate to the action of light.
1. The act of letting light fall on a light sensitive material 2. The amount of light that passes through a lens (either a camera or photographic paper) to form an image. In the camera, too much light causes overexposure-this makes negative film look too dark and reversal film look too light. Underexposure (too little light) has the reverse effect. In enlarging, overexposure makes a print from a negative too dark and a print from a slide too light. Underexposure has the reverse effect.
The amount of light reaching the light-sensitive medium; i.e., the film or an image sensor. Also, the intensity of light multiplied by the length of time the light strikes the medium.
A term relating to the amount of ionizing radiation that is incident upon living or inanimate material.
A measurement of the amount of ionization produced by x-rays or gamma rays as they travel through air. The unit of radiation exposure is the roentgen, named for Wilhelm Roentgen, the German scientist who discovered x-rays in 1895
a measure of the number of ionizations produced by gamma or x rays in a volume of air; expressed in units of roentgen
A person's contact with a hazardous chemical in the course of employment through any route of entry (inhalation, ingestion, skin contact or absorption, etc.).
The time integral of the concentration of a toxicant which is in the immediate vicinity of various ports of entry (such as lung, GI tract and skin). Qualitatively, contact between a potentially harmful agent and a receptor (e.g., a human or other organism) that could be affected. [S. L. Brown
an event that occurs when there is contact at a boundary between a human being and the environment with a contaminant for a specific concentration for an interval of time: the units of exposure are concentration multiplied by time.
the length of each slate exposed to the weather, i.e., not covered by the next above course. Exposure is expressed in inches. A simple formula is used to compute the exposure: Deduct 3" (standard lap) from length of slate and divide by two. For a 24" slate, usual exposure is 24-3= 21, 21 divided by 2=10-1/2".

can refer to a variety of concepts: Exposure to the weather, to vertical drops, or to the sun. Climbers speak of exposure as the feeling of intense vertigo or even mental paralysis that accompanies standing on the edge of a large precipice. Rescuers may speak of climbers being overcome by exposure: ie, the cooling of the body due to low temperatures and/or wind. Finally, guidebooks will note a slopes exposure, ie, north, south, east or west facing, which is valuable in determining avalanche potential

The act of exposing or laying open, setting forth, laying bare of protection, depriving of care or concealment, or setting out to reprobation or contempt.

The amount of chemical that enters the body by some route for a specified frequency and duration.
Concentration or amount of a pesticide that reaches the target population, organism, tissue or cell, usually expressed in numerical terms of concentration, duration and frequency. Also the process by which a substance becomes available for absorption by the target population, organism, tissue or cell, by any route. (after Duffus, 1993)

proximity to hazard
the state of being physically at risk from a hazard. Researchers differentiate between voluntary and involuntary exposure to hazards (see voluntariness). Examples of involuntary exposure include air pollution (as we must breathe ambient air), toxic contamination of food (as we must eat), and water pollution (as we have to drink). We do, on the other hand, have a greater choice over where we live and what activities we engage in (living in coastal or seismically active zones is to some extent voluntary; smoking or bungee jumping are definitely voluntary).

Keywords:  photom, jiggle, nod, telescope, beam
An exposure is the result from a complete set of switches. For example, in a JIGGLE/MAP or PHOTOM observation where the telescope is nodding the source between left and right beams, the data from each nod position is a switch and the reduced result `left switch' - `right switch' say, is an exposure. In a SCAN/MAP observation there is no beam switching so, in this case, an exposure is the same as a switch.
