  • /ageValue

    Provides an age value in years before present

  • /ageValueUncertainty

    Provides the uncertainty on an age value in years

  • /end

    The latest date (ie minimum age) of a geological time division

  • /hasGeochronologyRank

    Indicates the rank of the geological time division that it describes

  • /olderDivisionOfSameRank

    Links a geological division of time to the older division of the same rank so that it it is possible to put each time division in the correct order

  • /rankList

    A space delimited ordered list of the geological ranks

  • /start

    The earliest date (ie maximum age) of a geological time division

  • /subDivisions

    Links a given division to an ordered lists of its immediate child divisions.

  • /youngerDivisionOfSameRank

    Links a geological division of time to the younger one of the same rank so that it it is possible to put each time division in the correct order

  • /divisionList

    A space delimited ordered list of child divisions
