    To investigate the underlying characteristics of oceans and relating them with behavioral changes in marine life, we have developed an E-science platform – termed Platform for Ocean Knowledge Management (POKM). POKM employs a services-oriented architecture and delivers a suite of web services to support collaborative research projects amongst a community of environmental, marine life and oceanographic scientists across the world. To establish interoperability between the concepts from different domains and the data generated by different methods at different geographical sites, we present a knowledge management approach that entails the modeling of the domain concepts and the functionalities of the services in terms of domain and service ontologies, respectively. We present details of the domain and service ontologies at the heart of our E-science platform and demonstrate their application towards ocean knowledge management.
