Various specifications can be defined for data models to archive data from biology depending on the specific field, investigation and measurements. In some cases, a very specific data model needs to be simplified to fit into the generic data model of Pangaea.

Data model for archiving data from biological catches:

  • Metadata of station (catch label, date/time, depth, device, ...) = event table
    • Composition of catch (species, number, weight, biomass ...) = various data tables
      • Size class distribution of single species (size class, frequency, number of individuals ...)
      • Specification of single species (length, weight, stomach volume ...)
        • Investigation of parts of a single individuum (stomach content ...)
