I am making contour lines for a NetCDF file for sea surface temperature and the contour lines display the first band only (bands represents different dates). Theres few 100 bands in the NetCDF, how do I make sure the contour lines match the band I want?

Actually, I found the answer!

Here is the process: Raster->Extraction->Contour

In the pop up box go to gdal_contour and right after 'gdal_contour' add '-b #' where # is the band number you want.

It was in the documentation

Hope this helps someone else!
