Are you referring to the meteorological climatology data (met_climatology_v2014.hdf from https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/ancillary/)? For this file, yes, there are 12 months' data. For all the months from Feb - Dec., the different parameters' name should include "_Month", such as "z_wind_mean_February", "z_wind_mean_March". If this doesn't help, please include more information: such as your python code.
