StreamDensityPlot

StreamDensityPlot[{{vx,vy},s},{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax}]
generates a stream plot of the vector field as a function of x and y, superimposed on a background density plot of the scalar field s.

StreamDensityPlot[{vx,vy},{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax}]
takes the scalar field to be the norm of the vector field.

StreamDensityPlot[{{vx,vy},{wx,wy},,s},{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax}]
generates plots of several vector fields.

StreamDensityPlot[,{x,y}reg]
takes the variables to be in the geometric region reg.
