In its broadest sense, the word ‘exposure’ refers to a state of being vulnerable to something harmful.

A Guide To Climate Change Impacts, On Scotland’s Historic Environment, published by Historic Environment Scotland in October 2019, defines exposure as: ‘The natural features of an asset’s position within the landscape that render it vulnerable to harm or damage.’

Exposure can also refer to the revelation of a secret.
