Session Abstract:
The ESIP Semantic Technologies committee has been working to harmonize ontologies in the Earth sciences with ontologies in other fields (environmental science, biology, chemistry, etc.). We will be working on harmonizing SWEET with ENVO, with particular concentration on cryospheric terminology.

Session Takeaways (post-meeting):
1) Creating harmony between ontologies requires, expert knowledge, iterative testing, and considerable time.
2) Few concepts are as simple as you think, the relations between objects build the complexity. This complexity gives value to data they represents. Ice-cores and ice-fields as an example. These are made of ice, have similar base properties but are fundamental differ in what they can demonstrate in science. This is an example the value of a thorough ontology.
3) A monthly meeting will be formed starting 1/31, a cluster may also be formed.
