Waterbase-TCM: HazSubs Biota

Data Table
The HSBiota table contains disaggregated data on hazardous substances in biota, measured at Eionet-Water transitional, coastal or marine water monitoring stations, provided by national sources only. Each station has been assigned a unique Waterbase identifier (WaterbaseID) which can be used to link the Quality data with their respective Stations data.
European data
Table definition
Year Year year of aggregation period (aggregated data sets), or year in which sample taken (disaggregated data sets), in format YYYY. Year should be no later than that requested in the last Eionet-Water data request. smallint(2) 0
Month Month month in which sample taken, values in range 0-12. If the month value has not been supplied the value will be 0. smallint(2) 0
Day Day day in which sample was taken, values in range 0-31. If the day value has not been supplied the value will be 0. smallint(2) 0
Concentration Concentration concentration of determinand in sample. In TCM data, concentration values recorded as below the limit of detection or determination should contain the limit of detection or determination in the concentration field, with the LimitFlag field set to <. float(8) 0
Drywetratio Dry wet ratio ratio of dry weight to wet weight as a percentage. numeric(5) 0
Fat Fat fat content as a percentage of total wet matter. numeric(5) 0
