Hi there,

         I tried to make a streamline plot overlapped with a contour plot
using NCL (gsn_csm_streamline_contour_map_ce). It turned out the
streamlines are too dense so I wanna readuce the number of streamlines. I
tried to use

res@stMinLevelValF = 0
res@stMaxLevelValF = 10
res@stLevelSpacingF = 2
res@stLevelSelectionMode = "ManualLevels"

         It had no improve at all. Seems all these settings were ignored. I
also tried to use "AutomaticLevels" and set res@stLevelSpacingF, or
"EqualSpacedLevels" and set res@stMaxLevelCount. None of them works as I
expected. So I guess I must miss something here. Anyone has similar
experience and are willing to help me out? Thanks a lot.
