Dear John and Laurent,

thank you very much for your answers! This is the most comprehensice list of ontologies/dictionaries I have ever heard! Finding ontologies/dicitonaries is really difficult. 

I will look through all mentioned lists and references!

Thank you very much,

I forgot to mention the SeaDataNet/NERC DataGrid vocabularies have a  
few more sets of instruments/platforms.

See for example list L055.
