createVariable(name, type, dimensions)¶
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.
