Hi All

Thanks Dennis :) that does help and plot a negative slope.

I am just having some trouble with the plot as it seems to not be plotting along the lat and lons fully. Attached is the plot that the code produces, I think it might be something in the plot line, I have attached the code and output below.
Many thanks! :)

Kind Regards
Melissa
