Definition 63.18.8. If $X$ is a separated scheme of finite type over an algebraically closed field $k$ and $\mathcal{F} = \left\{ \mathcal{F}_ n\right\} _{n\geq 1}$ is a $\mathbf{Z}_\ell $-sheaf on $X$, then we define

\[ H^ i(X, \mathcal{F}) := \mathop{\mathrm{lim}}\nolimits _ n H^ i(X, \mathcal{F}_ n) \quad \text{and}\quad H_ c^ i(X, \mathcal{F}) := \mathop{\mathrm{lim}}\nolimits _ n H_ c^ i(X, \mathcal{F}_ n). \]

If $\mathcal{F} = \mathcal{F}'\otimes \mathbf{Q}_\ell $ for a $\mathbf{Z}_\ell $-sheaf $\mathcal{F}'$ then we set

\[ H_ c^ i(X , \mathcal{F}) := H_ c^ i(X, \mathcal{F}')\otimes _{\mathbf{Z}_\ell }\mathbf{Q}_\ell . \]

We call these the $\ell $-adic cohomology of $X$ with coefficients $\mathcal{F}$.

I couldn't find the definition of for a sheaf on the \'{e}tale site of anywhere else in the chapter. Did I just miss it?

Fixed by adding a definition in Remark 78.2. But of course this needs a lot more work. Thanks.
