Looking for CAPE and CIN scripts and/or help with vertical model levels

Hi, i wish to calculate CAPE and CIN from model data. I have not been able to find any available diagnostics to calculate these in STASH. Does anyone know if any exist or if anybody has any scripts to calculate them? If the answer to the above is no, i will need to use the hybrid_ht model levels to calculate them, i beleive the model starts off using sigma levels near the surface and switches to theta levels in the stratosphere. Is information available as to how these hybrid_ht's are calculated or how to convert them to other coordinates?

Have a look at NDdiag on NCAS CMS > Mesoscale Modelling > Analysis Tools >NDdiag. This calculates diagnostics on pressure levels from model levels. It includes psuedo-adiabatic CAPEP and reversible CIN whatever they are.

I hope this helps
