cfdm.Field.nc_del_component_variable

Field.nc_del_component_variable(component)[source]

Remove the netCDF variable name of components.

Removes the netCDF variable name for all components of a given type.

Some components exist within multiple constructs, but when written to a netCDF dataset the netCDF names associated with such components will be arbitrarily taken from one of them. The netCDF names can be set on all such occurrences individually, or preferably by using this method to ensure consistency across all such components.

New in version (cfdm): 1.8.6.0
