documentation change for pressure variable
The XDC documentation for the pressure variable is incomplete- it reads
"pressure" rather than "pressure reduced to sea-level".  It has always
been sea-level pressure although the provider of the data to the XDC (NCDC)
documents it incorrectly as surface pressure.
Change the XDC documentation and netcdf header information for the pressure
longname to read "pressure reduced to sea-level".
