German term or phrase: 1,6 Standardabweichungen über dem T-Wert (116%)
Er liegt (der durchschnittliche Kalksalzgehalt) somit 1,6 Standardabweichungen über dem T-Wert (116%) und 0,4 Standardabweichungen über dem Z-Wert (104%).

Consequently, it is 1.6 standard deviation above T-value (116%) and 0.4 standard deviation above Z-value (104%).
I do not understand statistical term standard deviation so I doubt whether I translated this complete sentence wrongly. Please, help me!

Probably, some more context (at least the sentence before) would help, but I think what is meant is,
it (the result) is 1.6 SD above normal T-score and 0.4 SD above normal Z-score

agree  SJLD: certainly the T-score and Z-scores are referring to bone density, but the second part (0.4 sd above Z score) does not make much sense without further context

Reference information:
I'm not sure what T refers to here, but I think you usually wouldn't include "value" here. And it's "Standardabweichung*en*: plural.

neutral  Trinh Do: T-value as used for the T-test in statistics, D is right here.
