Hi.

If you are going to use the scalar method, you must include a "coordinates" attribute on each data variable that names the scalar variables that specify the coordinates for the data variable.  So, you should add an attribute named coordinates with the value "time longitude latitude" to temperature, temperature_whole_profile_flag, temperature_qc_flag, temperature_sd_test, salinity, etc.

Grace and peace,

Jim
