Axes the wrong way round

Hello NCL-talk,

I'm trying to create a contour plot with the variable time on the
abscissa and height on the ordinate. The contours represent the target
classification of cloud particles.
My problem is now that the variable target classification is
predefined as target_classification(time,height) so that ncl
automatically puts time on the ordinate and height on the abscissa. So
it's exactly the opposite from what I want to print.
So my question is now if there's a fuction existing which switches the
axes or how can I solve this problem. A big thing is that my data is
present in a .nc and I don't know how to handle it.
  Thank you for your help

My code is as follows:

; Target Classification 2D

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"





wks= gsn_open_wks("pdf","Target")





   res = True

   res@gsnMaximize = True
   res@gsnPaperOrientation = "landscape"
   res@cnFillOn = True
   ;res@cnCellFillEdgeColor = "black"
   res@cnFillMode = "CellFill"
   res@cnLinesOn = False
   res@cnLineLabelsOn = False
   res@cnLevelSelectionMode = "ManualLevels" ; set manual
contour levels

   res@lbLabelAlignment = "BoxCenters"
   res@cnMinLevelValF = 0.1 ; set the minimum contour level
   res@cnMaxLevelValF = 10 ; set the maximum contour level
   res@cnConstFLabelConstantSpacingF = 1
   res@cnFillColors =
(/201,20,38,54,71,91,102,119,134,156,170,180/) ; set the
colors to be used
   res@cnLevelSpacingF = 1

   res@lbLabelAutoStride = True
   res@lbPerimOn = False
   res@lbLabelStride = 2

   res@tiMainString = ""

   res@trGridType = "TriangularMesh"

contour = gsn_csm_contour(wks,slice,res)
