grid rotate

When I use the grid rotate function, the executable works, and produces a mesh with the variable resolution mesh in the correct location. However, there seems to be a "shadow" present in the default mesh location. Are you aware of the reason for this shadow, and more importantly, will this influence my model output results?

I think the "shadow" may actually be a region of coarser cells that is a consequence of the way that we had defined the mesh density function when generating meshes with elliptical refinement. As a test, you could try plotting the original, unrotated mesh and noting the presence of coarser cells on the other side of the globe from the refinement region.
