createVariable(name, type, dimensions)[source]¶
Create an empty variable for the
netcdf_fileobject, specifying its data type and the dimensions it uses.
name : str
Name of the new variable.
type : dtype or str
Data type of the variable.
dimensions : sequence of str
List of the dimension names used by the variable, in the desired order.
variable : netcdf_variable
The newly created
netcdf_variableobject. This object has also been added to the
netcdf_fileobject as well.
Any dimensions to be used by the variable should already exist in the NetCDF data structure or should be created by
createDimensionprior to creating the NetCDF variable.
