> +infinity. I also see that it appears the data is expressed in Pascals, so I 
> manually edited the range to be 90,000 to 110,000 with a contour interval of 
> 400.
> 
> So, I basically have 2 questions:
> Will this data plot?
> If it plots, how do I change the units to hPa (or mb). (using the change 
> units dialog didn't seem to work).

Alan,
    I am not familiar with this dataset, will you upload a sample file to:

 http://motherlode.ucar.edu/repository/alias/idvupload

If it does plot, we can change the unit, under Display control, you can go 
Edit--> Change Display Unit.
