How to create cross sections with netCDF files??

I am a new to NCL, so I am having a hard time with figuring out how to do a
cross section using netCDF files. Currently my code looks like:

load "$NCARG_ROOT/lib/ncarg/nclscripts/csm/gsn_code.ncl"
load "$NCARG_ROOT/lib/ncarg/nclscripts/csm/gsn_csm.ncl"
load "$NCARG_ROOT/lib/ncarg/nclscripts/csm/contributed.ncl"

a = addfile("","r") #Add my netCDF file
air = a->airconc(:,:,:,:,:,:) #bring in the airconc variable to be
print(air(:,:,:,7,:,:)) #print out airconc at level 7

As is noted here, there is six dimensions of airconc (time, nageclass,
nspecies, level, lat, lon). I am not concerned with the first three
dimensions and they are always set to 0. However, I want to show the air
concentration with height through a portion of the domain (cross section).
I should add that the lat, lon are in meters, but I am not concerned about
that right now. Anyone have ideas on how this could be done??

Thank you all so much for taking the time to look at this issue.
