3. Tests should now show up when you run compliance checker:

compliance-checker -t ncei-trajectory-profile-orthogonal -v

The dataset scored 124 out of 127 points
during the ncei-trajectoryprofile-orthogonal check
Verbose Scoring Breakdown:

High Priority
Name :Priority: Score
All geophysical variables are trajector :3: 2/2
Required Global Attributes for Trajecto :3: 1/3
Required attributes for variable lat :3: 3/3
Required attributes for variable lon :3: 3/3
Required attributes for variable sal :3: 3/3
Required attributes for variable temp :3: 3/3
Required attributes for variable time :3: 3/3
Required attributes for variable z :3: 5/5
