[netCDFJava #DCH-123831]: problems using ncML to represent as timeSeriesProfile

Greetings Ellyn,

Are you following the CF 1.6 conventions for a Time series of profiles at a 
single station?


In this case, lat and lon will be scalars (i.e. shape = ""), you won't need a 
station dimension, 
but you will need a profile dimension. Your variables will have a shape = 
"profile  depth".
