The scientific computing manages massive amounts of very large data sets. The development of description of the format, structure and semantic content of data is essential for the automatic manipulation of data. The aim of this paper is to define an XML-based language for describing the structure, semantic and annotation of scientific data. The XML Schema and the Document Type Definitions (DTDs) that implement the abstract format are provided. The proposed language describes the structure, semantic and annotation of the scientific data from experiments and simulations.
