  Superstructure - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In social sciences, superstructure is the set of socio-psychological feedback loops that maintain a coherent and meaningful structure in a given society, or part thereof.
By most sociological schema, superstructure does not refer to the specific materials of an organization, such as a school or a store, but rather to the set of psychological or semantic configurations whereby that structure is rationalised and reproduced in human experience.
The relationship between superstructure and base is considered to be a dialectical one, not a distinction between actual entities "in the world".

 (iii) Basis and Superstructure
Marx uses the term “superstructure” to describe society's institutions and ideas because he argues that these aspects of our life do not simply dwell in a self-contained world of their own but have their origin in the way we relate to one another in the realm of material production.
From the superstructure we learn how the particular ideas and personalities, parties and politicians shape the event so that it turns out the way it does: from the basis we find why the event really occurred in terms of the underlying, deeply rooted causes which exist “beneath the surface," as it were.
The superstructure expresses the struggle as people battle in the streets, refuse to go to work and join the ranks of the liberation movement: the basis actually explains it as the uprising of the African, Coloured and Indian people who are robbed by a racist white minority of the wealth which they collectively produce.

 Ship Superstructure Icing: Data Collection and Instrument Performance on USCGC MIDGETT Research Cruise - Storming Media
Superstructure icing may also reduce the operating efficiency or mission performance of larger vessels.
The ability to predict the environmental conditions under which icing may occur, the location of icing on a vessel under those conditions, and the rate at which ice will accrete may allow vessels to avoid hazardous conditions or operate in a manner so as to minimize the accretion of ice.
This report describes how spray delivery and superstructure icing were measured during a research cruise on the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Midgett, operating in the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea in February-March 1990, to support the validation and calibration of a numerically based icing prediction model being developed for the U.S. Navy.
