Hi Theresa,

I'm not sure what you mean by "scaling them". I need a little
more information.

How are your data being generated? Are you reading them off
a file, or calculating them via a function? Do they have
level, lat, and lon coordinate arrays attached to them, or any
kind of level, lat, lon variables that are associated with them?

You can use "printVarSummary" to look at your data and
see if they have coordinate information attached.


If you can give me more information, like do you
have an NCL script already and need help adjusting it,
or are you starting completely from scratch and
not sure where to start?
