it appears that my attachments could not attach. I have downloaded my ncl script and file to the top level of,macftp,macftp if someone can help.

Subject: ocean depth versus time (or lat/lon), emphasising upper ocean

I am trying to plot ocean depth vs time. for a number of ocean models (data has been supplied to me from these different modelling groups) and I want to emphasis the upper ocean within one plot (not 2 plots on top of each other as is commonly done) so that I can take advantage of the panelling tools.

When I generate the plot without

res_at_gsnYAxisIrregular2Linear = False

it gives me a good representation of what I want, however, a bit too much emphasis on the very upper data because of the high resolution near the ocean surface.

And so I thought of regridding the data to a depth coordinate that would give me something closer to what I want, and the idea is to do this for all models so that I have a consistent depth axis.

However, when I do this it gives me a perfectly linear depth axis without any emphasis on the first 1000m. I suspect some attribute is missing from the coordinate.

I have attached my script (just for one ocean model) and left it the code to plot the reasonable scaling for the depth axis which can be turned on by swapping the 3 lines where it says "here". When the existing code
is used depth goes the wrong way and doesn't respond to the resource trYReverse but that is of secondary concern at the moment.
