Hi Robbie,
Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. Your support request kind of 
slipped off our radar.

Are you trying to get just one time step back that holds the average?
If so the averageOverTime routine should do that:
def averageOverTime(field,makeTimes=0):
    """Average the values in each time step                                     
    If makeTimes is true (1) then we return a field mapping all of the times    
    to the average. Else we just return the average """

If makeTimes == 1 then it will return a field with the same number of time 
steps but with the average values replicated for each time.


The averageovertime results in a field with the same number of time steps
