xarray.DataArray.to_netcdf#

DataArray.to_netcdf(*args, **kwargs)[source]#

Write DataArray contents to a netCDF file.

All parameters are passed directly to xarray.Dataset.to_netcdf().

Notes

Only xarray.Dataset objects can be written to netCDF files, so the xarray.DataArray is converted to a xarray.Dataset object containing a single variable. If the DataArray has no name, or if the name is the same as a coordinate name, then it is given the name "__xarray_dataarray_variable__".
