Abstract Level curves for the resistive compressible ballooning growth rates and the ideal ballooning stability boundaries with incompressibility and perpendicular compressibility are determined in the parameter space of shear-versus-pressure gradient for realistic tokamak equilibria. The trajectories of these level curves differ from the ideal incompressible stability boundary in this space.
