Correspondence between 40 and 62 model level definitions

Correspondence between the L40 and L62 model levels showing the values of full level pressure, p_L40 and p_L62, respectively, for a surface pressure of PS[hPa]= 1013.250.

A description of how model levels should be interpreted is available in the IFS documentation Part III- chapter 2 (DISCRETISATION --> Vertical discretisation)
