lev = 30 ; mid-layers
ilev = 31 ; interface layers
double hyai(ilev) ;
double hybi(ilev) ;
double hyam(lev) ;
double hybm(lev) ;

float PS(time, lat, lon)
float U(time, lev, lat, lon)
float Q(time, lev, lat, lon) ;

Are you using hyai and hybi (the interface layers)
or hyam, hybm? You should be using hyai and hybi

p0 = f->P0
ps = f->PS
hyai = f->hyai
hybi = f->hybi
dp = dpres_hybrid_ccm (ps,p0,hyai,hybi)
printVarSummary(dp)
