DataArray.sel(indexers=None, method=None, tolerance=None, drop=False, **indexers_kwargs)

Return a new DataArray whose data is given by selecting index labels along the specified dimension(s).


Do not try to assign values when using any of the indexing methods isel or sel:

da = xr.DataArray([0, 1, 2, 3], dims=['x'])
# DO NOT do this
da.isel(x=[0, 1, 2])[1] = -1

Assigning values with the chained indexing using .sel or .isel fails silently.
