Analysing the measurement data of a complex system always means interpreting the data with respect to a certain model. For the interpretation of the reflectance spectra of human skin, we use a twofold model. Part one of the model relates mesoscopic quantities like concentrations of skin dyes and the scatterer size distribution to characteristic optical parameters. The second part is a simulation of the experiment, which relates the reflectance to the optical parameters and therefore enables the estimation of the mesoscopic parameters on the basis of the measured reflectance . In order to apply this model to topics of legal medicine a scientific information repository has been developed, which enables the physicist to store the measured reflectance spectra and to browse the analysis performed by the physician . This contribution discusses the twofold model, the scientific information repository, and the experimental verification that the discolouration of livor mortis due to cooling is caused by re-oxygenation .
