Definition:
Temperature is defined, in general, as the degree of hotness or coldness
as measured on some definite temperature scale by means of any of various
types of thermometers. In meteorology, a profile is defined as a
graph of the value of a scalar quantity versus a horizontal, vertical, or
time scale. It usually refers to a vertical representation.
