NetCDF Longitude values shift

I've been several days with this not quite getting what I need. Any help would be much appreciated.


I'm trying to use python to shift the longitude values of a netcdf file. The original file longitude goes from -1.875 to +360

I need the file to show properly when importing it in Arcmap (Make NetCDF Raster Layer) so the raster and its values are -180 180 (as well as -90 90). The values are vertical velocity depth.


I'm trying a short script that someone showed online with a similar issue. Apparently it worked for him. In my case I just manage to shift the frame but not the values (see picture).


global map -180 180 but actual depth values not shifting


Any suggestions? Many thanks


import arcpy
import numpy as np
import netCDF4
from netCDF4 import Dataset
from arcpy import env
from import*

Bathy = Dataset(r"H:\NETcdf_TEST\",'r+', format="NETCDF4")

lon = Bathy.variables[u'longitude'][:]
lat = Bathy.variables[u'latitude'][:]
depth = Bathy.variables[u'W_mm_dpth'][:]

depth_new = np.roll(depth, 360, axis = 1)
lon_new = lon[:]-178.125

Bathy.variables[u'longitude'][:] = lon_new
Bathy.variables[u'W_mm_dpth'][:] = depth_new
