[IDV #ZKB-937399]: z to pressure in wrf

Hi Shannon,
       Thanks for your comment on the IDV, it would be nice if you can provide 
your
successful story of using the IDV in your research and share with the community.

       For the vertical coordinates, you might try using the Transect display 
which 
has the vertical scale in both height and pressure.  See the section of the 
workshop 
on this at:
