# dtrend_msg

Hi

I'm trying to plot the slopes of two 3d data sets (time,lat,lon). It is
27 years of seasonal temperature data. In one case reasonable results
appear in my plots for all seasons in another case three of four plots
look reasonable but the last is very different. I would like to know if
you see anything in the way I'm using dtrend_msg or how I act on the
results of using this function that would produced the inconsistent
output plots.

Attached is the case with the inconsistent set of plots.

thanks
Larry
