how to create a pressure-height-vector plot?

I would like a bit of advice on how to create a pressure-longitude plot...

I am writing a script based on the pressure-height-vector plots given at and, but my model
output is already in pressure levels (no need to convert from hybrid
sigma-pressure levels with vinth2p() ), and I haven't output 3D pressure
from my simulations...

So I am trying to figure out how to use the pressure levels that T (or RH
etc.) is already output at... and how exactly to use this information to
construct the leftmost dimension of the 'data' argument that function
requires? i.e.


The two-dimensional data to contour. The leftmost dimension must contain a
one-dimensional coordinate array of pressure values, and the values must be
in the correct units. This is determined by examining the "units" attribute
of the coordinate variable. Some accepted units are "hpa", "hPa", "Pa",
"pa", "mb", "millibars", etc. If the units attribute doesn't exist or has
the wrong value, an error will be issued.
Can it be done?

Thanks for your advice.
