I thought that was reasonable. Some profiles will not be regular, and I think that's OK. Yes, "profile" is correct, there were some places i inadvertantly used "profiler". Just wondering if there was a better generic name.
I think "profile" is fine. It's meaning is understood within Oceanography and would be O.K. for irregular vertical axes. My intention was to introduce terminology used within the community, not to offer "string" as as a better generic name. -Mike
