Glass sponges (Hexactinellida) are mainly found in the deep sea. The glass sponge Vazella pourtalesi (colloquially "Russian hat") is found in large quantities on the continental shelf off Canada: Photo: Ellen Kenchington, DFO. The Aquatic Symbiosis project will be the first to produce genomes of glass sponges. Its microbial symbionts, on the other hand, are already well researched (Bayer, Busch et al., mSystems 2020).

Changes in sea surface temperature and precipitation in a climate change experiment in the tropical Atlantic region in a coarse (a, c) and high (b, d) resolution model. From Park and Latif, 2020.

Improved models show stronger climate change signal in the tropical Atlantic

Comparative study of the GEOMAR illustrates dependence on model resolution
