200 hPa geopotential heights

Does anyone see a problem with this segment of code
for computing 200 hPa geopotential heights from a regional
climate model output? The values I get seem a little bit higher
than I expected by say 100 m.

Thanks, Michael

; Assign the topography to zsfc
    do it=0,dimsizes(time)-1
    end do

; Convert water vapor mixing ratio to specific humidity
    q=q/(1.+q) ; mix rat to spec hum

; Use temperature and specific humidity to compute virtual temp


; Get pressure at each sigma
    p=pres_sigma(sigma,ps) ; hPa

; Compute heights

; Retrieve 200 hPa heights
