Subject: problem with ua2nc


Robb-

Steve found a problem with ua2nc (at least the version that is running
on zero).  In the mandatory pressure data (TTAA), the heights
are sometimes off by a factor of 10.  Below is output from
ncdump of 99072806_perl_ua.nc from the htman section:

419, 162, 822, 1534, 3132, 5780, 7430, 9470, 10690, 12130, 14020, 16620, 18890, 21040, 24350, 27010, _, _, _, _, _, _, 12, 518, 658, 1390, 3038, 5790, 7540, 9690, 1000, 12520, 14370, 16830, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, 6, 17, 698, 1437, 3094, 5840, 7580, 9730, 1010, 12530, 14370, 16820, 18950, 21030, 24310, 26980, 31680, _, _, _, _, _, 73, 23, 702, 1436, 3088, 5850, 7600, 9740, 1030, 12550, 14380, 16810, 18920, 20990, 24250, 26890, _, _, _, _, _, _, 13, 25, 707, 1438, 3087, 5830, 7580, 9710, 1000, 12510, 14360, 16820, 18950, 21030, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, 70, 201, 856, 1556, 3141, 5780, 7430, 9450, 10650, 12130, 14040, 16670, 18980, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _, _,

note that for the 2nd station, that the 250 mb height (9th value) is
1000.  This should be 10000.  Here are the reports for the 4 stations
which have erroneous levels listed:
