With the goal of understanding the ocean's surface salinity response to precipitation from atmospheric rivers, these data include oceanic values for salinity and temperature; and atmospheric values of precipitation, wind speed, specific humidity, air temperature, and long and shortwave radiation. The file contains data from five different data sources: (1) European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Reanalysis (ERA5); (2) Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO)-generated AR catalog, the SIO-R1 AR catalog; (3) California Underwater Glider Network (CUGN) Spray Glider along Line 66.7; (4) Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) M1 Mooring; (5) Modeled outputs from a one-dimensional configuration of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology General Circulation Model (MITgcm); Several steps were taken to process the data to produce various figure and model inputs. The files and descriptive file paths for these are included here. Author funding: MRM and STG were supported by NASA awards NNX16AH67G and 80NSSC20K1136.
