Title: Terms defined by the ZooArchNet Chronometric Age Vocabulary Date version issued: 2020-09-14 Date created: 2020-09-14 Not part of any TDWG Standard This version: http://rs.tdwg.org/chrono/version/zooarchnet/2020-09-14 Latest version: http://rs.tdwg.org/chrono/zooarchnet/ Abstract: This list includes terms defined by the ZooArchNet Chronometric Age Vocabulary Namespace IRI: http://zooarchnet.org/dwc/terms/ Preferred namespace abbreviation: zooarchnet: Status note: This term list has been deprecated and is no longer recommended for use.
This is a list of terms that may be part of a TDWG vocabulary. If the terms on this list are defined by TDWG, the list corresponds to terms in a namespace whose IRI is listed in the header. In the case where the terms are borrowed from a non-TDWG vocabulary, the list includes terms that are "borrowed" for inclusion in a TDWG vocabulary. The list includes all "current" terms on the list, which may or may not be recommended for use. Terms that are no longer recommended for use may have specified replacements - see the metadata about that specific term.
This term list is available in the formats or distribution methods listed in the table below. Please note that distribution access URLs may be subject to change over time. Therefore, it is preferable to request the abstract IRI of the resources and request the desired Content-type through content negotiation.
Upper limit for the age of a specimen as determined by a dating method. The expected unit for this field is years. This field, if populated, must have an associated maximumChronometricAgeReferenceSystem.
Lower limit for the age of a specimen as determined by a dating method. The expected unit for this field is years. This field, if populated, must have an associated maximumChronometricAgeReferenceSystem.
The method used for converting the reportedAge into a chronometric date, as captured in the maximumAge, maximumAgeUnits, minimumAge, and minimumAgeUnits fields. For example, calibration of conventional radiocarbon age.
The verbatim age for a specimen, whether reported by a dating assay, associated references, or legacy information. For example, this could be the conventional radiocarbon age as given in an AMS dating report. This could also be simply what is reported as the age of a specimen in legacy collections data.
The method used for converting the verbatimChronometricAge into a chronometric age in years, as captured in the maximumChronometricAge, maximumChronometricAgeReferenceSystem, minimumChronometricAge, and minimumChronometricAgeReferenceSystem fields. For example, calibration of conventional radiocarbon age or the currently accepted age range of a cultural or geological period.
