	return_val [12][*][*][*] :  typeof(x)



A four-dimensional array of monthly means, dimensioned time x lat x lon x lev. The time dimension must be a multiple of 12.

Return value

The results are returned in an array of the same type and dimensionality as x, except the time dimension will be length 12. if the input data contain metadata, these will be retained.
