2) Choose the date/time range. From 20.07.2001 till 31.08.2001 and 31.10.2001 till 23.8.2017.
You can plot at a selfdefined time and date, select the average plot allover the day for one or more days,
or you can select the average plot at one daytime for several days.

3) Choose the start/left position for the plot (negative values for western/southern longitude;
the minimum longitude allowed is -180).
Longitude: Latitude:
4) Choose the end/right position for the plot (negative values for western/southern longitude;
the maximum longitude allowed depends on the resolution, for T42 it is 177 degrees).

specify minimum
and maximum      
min=0 and max=0 uses default
minimum and maximum values.

Number of colors (2-240):

0 uses the default seven colors.
choose 7 prespecified contourintervals (overrides all the other options)
output a higher resolution graphic (takes up to one minute longer!)
