SWEET Ontologies

Ontologies represented in the Ontology Web Language for Earth Realms, Numerics, Phenomena (any transient feature), Physical Properties, Space, Physical Substances, Time, Units, Dataset Properties. The ontologies include some class-subclass relationships between terms as well as other restrictions (e.g., disjoint from).

The ontologies are not very specific. Crosswalks have been created to the Global Change Master Directory keywords and the NetCDF COARDS Climate and Forecast (CF) Conventions.
