[IDV #OGJ-545964]: Plotting wind on isosurface


If I understand correctly, you wish to drape streamlines or wind vectors over an
isentropic isosurface (e.g., theta).

To my knowledge, the best you can do here is *color* the isosurface by, say, 
speed. Choose âisosurface colored by another parameterâ, in the IDV 
Field Selector.

In addition, if you select wind vectors under derived quantities in the Field
Selector, there are a variety of options for plotting vectors and eventually
streamlines. Also examine the Displays panel to see what display types are
available (including 3D display types), also in the Field Selector for wind


Let us know if that helps.
