Sea Lines of Communication: Construction

The Sea Lines of Communication: Construction Conference's aim was to build upon the themes explored during the inaugural conference in 2014. In this sense, the idea of 'construction' not only was intended as an overarching theme of the day's papers, but also in the larger sense of contructing a multidisciplinary view of the ocean.
