#' @title Gets depths from data frame containing profile info.
#' 
#' @description Extracts the depth information from a data frame containing multi-depth
#' observation data. Relies on the format of the header to get information and
#' may fail if your file format is incorrect. Please follow 'VAR_##.#' format,
#' where ##.# is the depth of data for that column. VAR is typically 'wtr' to
#' indicate water temperature.
#' 
#' 
#' @param data Data frame returned from \code{\link{load.ts}}.
#' @return A numeric vector of depth values. Should be the \code{ncol(data) -
#' 1} in length as the first column contains date/time data.
