Dataset.shift(shifts=None, fill_value=<NA>, **shifts_kwargs)

Shift this dataset by an offset along one or more dimensions.

Only data variables are moved; coordinates stay in place. This is consistent with the behavior of shift in pandas.

shifts : Mapping with the form of {dim: offset}

Integer offset to shift along each of the given dimensions. Positive offsets shift to the right; negative offsets shift to the left.

fill_value: scalar, optional

Value to use for newly missing values


The keyword arguments form of shifts. One of shifts or shifts_kwarg must be provided.

shifted : Dataset

Dataset with the same coordinates and attributes but shifted data variables.
