French term or phrase: masquage–exposition
A document on sedimentology, this phrase comes up several times:

Le coefficient de masquage–exposition utilisé est celui de Egiazaroff (1965). Il est basé sur des considérations théoriques d’équilibre des grains :

...l’introduction d’un coefficient de masquage-exposition pour traduire l’efficacité du forçage à mettre des grains de différentes tailles en mouvement.

La particularité de cette formulation tient dans l’intégration d’un coefficient de masquage-exposition exprimé de manière probabiliste

La contrainte de frottement critique de la classe i est une modulation (par le biais d’un coefficient de masquage-exposition ξi) de la contrainte seuil du diamètre médian du mélange (D50).

agree  Duncan Moncrieff: hiding/exposure factor more simply, (e.g. http://www.water-environment.org/proceedings_pdf/ICWRER2013_... ), or "hiding and exposure corrections" (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/2006WR004919/full )
