Abstract. Simulated sea surface salinity (SSS in g/kg) from the Rossby Centre Ocean circulation model coupled with the Swedish Coastal and Ocean Biogeochemical model (RCO-SCOBI, developed at SMHI) and reconstructed river runoff (km³) used as forcing for the simulation. There is one file for SSS of the whole simulation area of the reference simulation, four files containing the zonal mean SSS for the reference and the three sensitivity experiments (FRESH, constRUNOFF and WIND) and the total annual river runoff of each river in the reference simulationh. All data are saved as annual mean netcdf files. Details of the RCO-SCOBI model simulation can be found in: Meier, H. E. M., Eilola, K., Almroth-Rosell, E., Schimanke, S., Kniebusch, M., Höglund, A., and others (2018).
