Hello,

I modified your script slightly with some monthly NCEP Reanalysis data
that I have here. I added a few streamline resources, resulting in mixed
results. Here is the graphics portion of my script:

wks=gsn_open_wks("x11","hadley")
res=True

res_at_cnLinesOn=False
res_at_cnLineLabelsOn=False
res_at_cnInfoLabelOn=False

  res_at_stArrowLengthF = 0.008 ; default is dynamic
  res_at_stLengthCheckCount = 90 ; default is 35
  res_at_stArrowStride = 1
  res_at_stLineStartStride = 1 ; default is 2
  res_at_stMinArrowSpacingF = 0.0 ; default is 0.0
; res_at_stStepSizeF = 0.001 ; default is dynamic
plot=gsn_csm_pres_hgt_streamline(wks,v(0:11,:,{120}),v(0:11,:,{170}),ws(0:11,:,{120}),res)
end

I would recommend varying/playing with the 6 st resources I used above,
and see if you can create a plot that works for you.
Good luck,
Adam
