Hi Ann,

I suspect that you have the pole included as the limits, correct?  Try
recontouring the data without including 90 (or -90 if you are southern
hemisphere).  Make the max something like 89, that usually works for me.

I think this behaviour is described in the on-line documentation but I just
looked and couldn't find it.
