Workspace Method ZFromPSimple


Simple conversion from pressure to altitude.

This function converts a vector of pressure values to an approximate vector
of corresponding heights. The formula used to convert pressure to height is:
z = 16000 * (5.0 - log10(p))That is, a pressure is  assumed to decrease by a factor of 10 every 16km.

Note that all pressure values in the vector must be greater than 0.01.
