Domain knowledge and semantics underlay a huge range of aspirational goals for soil data collections. From data-informed AI to predict carbon changes over the 21st century, to data interoperability for data-driven policy and carbon markets for climate mitigation, to data discovery and reuse - ‘big data’ has promised to improve our policy and science. However, still needed is to do the low-level work of developing language around the what, how, and why of soil data in order to tackle these big ticket items. Developing these low-level linkages between language and data is a challenging transdisciplinary problem. In this session, we will explore possible linkages between current soil data collections from six researcher-lead efforts and current semantics resources. We will identify next steps for how data and semantics linkages can be improved by building on lessons learned in other disciplines and from current soil research networks. Recommended Ways to Prepare: We will generate a set of lightning talks and one-page recaps of soil data collections and semantic resources prior to the session via a 2 hour virtual workshop in June.
