(identity=None, squeeze=False, default=ValueError())[source]¶ Remove a domain axis construct.
In general, a domain axis construct can only be removed if it is not spanned by any construct’s data. However, a size 1 domain axis construct can be removed in any case if the squeeze parameter is set to
True
. In this case, a metadata construct whose data spans only the removed domain axis construct will also be removed.New in version 3.6.0.

 Parameters
 identity: optional
Select the domain axis construct by one of:
An identity or key of a 1d dimension or auxiliary coordinate construct that whose data spans the domain axis construct.
A construct has a number of stringvalued identities
defined by its
identities
method, and is selected if any of them match the identity parameter. identity may be a string that equals one of a construct’s identities; or are.Pattern
object that matches one of a construct’s identities viare.search
.Note that in the output of a
dump
method orprint
call, a metadata construct is always described by one of its identities, and so this description may always be used as an identity value.A domain axis construct identity.

.The key of a domain axis construct.
None
. This is the default, which selects the domain axis construct when there is only one of them.'key%dimensioncoordinate2'
are both acceptable keys.
 Parameter example:
identity='long_name=Latitude'
 Parameter example:
identity='dimensioncoordinate1'
 Parameter example:
identity='domainaxis2'
 Parameter example:
identity='key%domainaxis2'
 Parameter example:
identity='ncdim%y'
 squeeze:
bool
, optional If True then allow the removal of a size 1 domain axis construct that is spanned by any data array and squeeze the corresponding dimension from those arrays.
 default: optional
Return the value of the default parameter if the construct can not be removed, or does not exist.
If set to an
Exception
instance then it will be raised instead.
 Returns
DomainAxis
The removed domain axis construct.
