Virtual Solar Terrestrial Observatory Ontology

The Virtual Solar Terrestrial Observatory (VSTO) is a unified semantic environment serving data from diverse data archives in the fields of solar, solar-terrestrial, and space physics (SSTSP).
The VSTO portal (http://vsto.org) uses the underlying VSTO ontology (i.e. an organized knowledge base of the SSTSP domain) to present a general interface that allows selection and retrieval of products (ascii and binary data files, images, plots) from heterogenous external data services.

PML-Provenance Ontology

The Proof Markup Language - Provenance (PML-P) ontology defines concepts and relations to represent dependencies between identifiable things. PML-P is one of the constituent parts of the Proof Markup Language (PML), which is designed to support the enconding of distributed provenance.

provenance
PML-Justification Ontology

The Proof Markup Language - Justification (PML-J) Ontology defines concepts and relations to represent dependencies between indentifiable things. Its intended use is to encode the information manipulation steps used to derive a conclusion. PML-J is a constituent module of the Proof Markup Language (PML), a language to encode distributed provenance.

Workflow-Driven Ontology

Version 1.0 of the Workflow Driven Ontology. Authors: Leonardo Salayandia, Ann Q. Gates, and Paulo Pinheiro da Silva. This ontology defines the concepts and constructs necessary to model scientific processes as Abstract Workflows.

Eddy Covariance WDO

A workflow-driven ontology that captures vocabulary to describe the application of the Eddy Covariance process to monitor carbon, energy and water balance in the environment.

Third Provenance Challenge WDO

The Third Provenance Challenge workshop had the goals of: 1) identify the weaknesses and strengths of the Open Provenance Model (OPM), 2) encourage the development of concrete bindings for OPM, and 3) determine how well OPM can represent provenance for a variety of technologies. This ontology captures the vocabulary that our team used to create an abstract workflow about the challenge posted for this version of the workshop. More information about the workshop can be found at: http://twiki.ipaw.info/bin/view/Challenge/ThirdProvenanceChallenge.

Crustal Modeling WDO

Workflow-Driven Ontology about the process of creating a 2D crustal model of the subsurface of the Earth. The process uses receiver function data, gravity data, and magnetic data to create the model. The field of application is Geophysics. This process was originally documented by Dr. Randy Keller, and later refined by Dr. Musa Hussein.

Contour Map WDO

A workflow-driven ontology about the process of creating a contour map out of georeferenced gravity and magnetic datasets. The main application domain is Geophysics. The process was originally documented under the guidance of Dr. Randy Keller with the collaboration of Flor Salcedo, Dr. Ann Q. Gates, and Leonardo Salayandia.

Quick Look WDO

The Quick Look Workflow-Driven Ontology captures vocabulary used to describe the automated processing of data from the Coronal Helium I Imaging Photometer (CHIP). This instrument is operated by HAO/NCAR in Mauna Loa, Hawaii (http://mlso.hao.ucar.edu) and serves as a testbed data ingest for provenance capture. This ontology imports concepts from the Virtual Solar Terrestrial Observatory (VSTO) ontology (http://www.vsto.org/forward.htm?forward=ontology).

Data Fusion project WDO

The geo-subproject of the Cybershare center is taking on the challenge of creating models of the Earth from diverse data sources that have different properties such as resolution and uncertainty. This workflow-driven ontology captures concepts that are used to model the process of collaboration among the team members of this project, who come from different areas of expertise.

Reflectance Data Gathering WDO

A workflow-driven ontology about terminology to describe the process of gathering reflectance data. This process is also informally referred to as "Santonu's Process".

Hole's Code WDO v0.1

A workflow-driven ontology that captures vocabulary to describe the process referred to as Hole's Code. Hole's Code is a nonlinear tomography inversion procedure and a finite difference calculation that uses observed travel-times of seismic waves to construct velocity models of the Earth's crust.
