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.
