How read depth is calculated?

In my Targetted Exome sample for variant calling, I notice that the read depth (DP) in the GT field is much less (ie. 12) compared to DP field in the INFO column (ie. 139). I would like to know,
1. What is the relation between read depth in both the fields?
2. How is the read depth calculated in both the cases?
