vinth2p uses one definition (Community Atmosphere Model) for hybrid levels.
Specifically:
*p = a(k)*p0 + b(k)*ps*.
ECMWF uses another:
*p = ap(k) + **b(k)*ps where [ap(k)=a(k)*p0]*
JMA (Japanese Meteorological Agency) uses a third method
p(k) = *exp*
<http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Functions/Built-in/exp.shtml>(
(1/dp(k))*(p(k-0.5)**log*
<http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Functions/Built-in/log.shtml>(p(k-0.5)) -
p(k+0.5)**log*
<http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Functions/Built-in/log.shtml>
(p(k+0.5))-1.0))
where the p(k-05) and p(k+0.5) represent the interface coefficients.
Hence, different coefficients. Try
