[IDV #DSN-496768]: IDV not generating aerological profiles (soundings)



Hi Simon-

The grid sounding subsystem assumes that the vertical dimension is pressure and 
that's how it gets the pressure for the sounding.  Would you upload a sample 
file to:

http://motherlode.ucar.edu/repository/alias/idvupload

and I'll take a look to see if there is any quick thing we can do to accomodate 
your files.
