Hi Kim,

If you have the depths available in a Ferret variable (i.e if you could type
	yes? LIST my_depths
and see your depths) then you can use this technique:

  DEFINE AXIS/DEPTH/FROM_DATA/NAME=LDEOdepths/Z/units=meters my_depths
  LET my_temp = temp[gz=my_depths@asn]

Now use my_temp instead of temp -- my_temp will be based on the Z axis of
irregular depths.
