I've got a really nifty plot (see below) that's *almost* perfect. I'd like to make the vector head arrows smaller, and I'd like to label the relative Hs and Ls of the contoured field. I know about 'extremum.jnl', and I've tinkered with calling it over different regions, but that results in labels adjacent to each other if the regions specified are adjacent. BTW, the picture is SST, sea ice, sea level pressure and winds, from three differ- ent models on three different grids. No interpolation of the data from one grid to another was done. FERRET 5.22 has really solved the curvilinear grids on map projections!
