subarray

Parameters
chunks: int, sequence, dict or str, optional

Define the subarray shapes.

Any value accepted by the chunks parameter of the dask.array.from_array function is allowed.

The subarray sizes implied by chunks for a dimension that has been compressed are ignored and replaced with values that are implied by the decompression algorithm, so their specification is arbitrary.

By default, chunks is -1, meaning that all non-compressed dimensions in each subarray have the maximum possible size.

Returns
list

The subarray shapes along each uncompressed dimension.
