What is the error?

do you know about the NCL web page? http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/
or the Applications page? http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Applications

Using the "bogs" option in RIP4 will print an ASCII sounding.

I assume you know how to run RIP4. (If not you'll need to check the documentation).

A sample plot specification file is:

&userin
idotitle=1,titlecolor='def.foreground',
title='METGRID BOGUS SOUNDINGS',
ptimes=0.,
ptimeunits='h',tacc=600,timezone=8,iusdaylightrule=0,
iinittime=1,ivalidtime=1,inearesth=1,
flmin=.09, frmax=.92, fbmin=.10, ftmax=.85,
ntextq=0,ntextcd=0,mdatebf=99999999,
idescriptive=1,icgmsplit=0,maxfld=10,itrajcalc=0,imakev5d=0
&end
&trajcalc
rtim=24,ctim=6,dtfile=10800.,dttraj=600.,vctraj='s',
xjtraj=25,20,15,10,35,70,65,40.6,40.6,40.6,40.6,40.6,40.6,
yitraj=50,55,60,65,70,65,20,37,37,37,37,37,37,
zktraj=.9,.9,.9,.9,.9,.9,.9,.99,.9,.8,.7,.6,.5,
ihydrometeor=0
&end
===========================================================================
---------------------- Plot Specification Table ---------------------
===========================================================================
feld=tic; ptyp=sb; colr=black; bogs
feld=uuu,vvv; ptyp=sv; fulb=5mps; nttl; colr=dark.blue; sloc=RJAA; bogs
feld=tmc; ptyp=sc; colr=red; linw=3
feld=tdp; ptyp=sc; colr=dark.green; linw=3
===========================================================================


sloc can be any one of the standard RIP location specifiers (Station ID, lat/lon, or x,y). In this example, it's Narita. RIP can plot metgrid files, wrfinput or wrfout files. The ASCII sounding is written to fort.66.
