    Hi Dave,

    Try setting this resource:

    res@gsnTickMarksOn = False

    Polar longitude labels are handled a little differently than labels on a CE
    plot, because there is no X Bottom/Top, Y Bottom/Top. And thus, tmYLLabelsOn,
    tmXBLabelsOn, etc. cannot be used. So Mary came up with a gsn resource to set
    the longitude labels for a polar stereographic plot (although the resource works
    for other plots as well)...
