Contains technical reports written by practicing scientists and macro-engineers Gathers together a number of macro-projects involving seawater management, arid lowlands and water bodies rehabilitation Provides a history of the literature related to Macro-engineering
Living with Sea Level Change and Dynamic Landscapes.- The Red Sea - Dead Sea Canal.- The Sea Highway Macro-project.- Sediment Transport by Wind and Water.- Macro-engineering Lake Eyre with Imported Seawater.- The Bering Strait Seawater Deflector
The subjects refer to histories of ancient and modern use of seacoasts; possible macro-projects capable of massive changes in the coastlines of the Dead Sea, Red Sea and Persian Gulf caused by canal and massively scaled hydropower dam installations; relevant macro-projects for the Black Sea and Baltic Sea; possibilities of refreshment of the Aral Sea and Iran's Lake Uremia with seawater or river freshwater importation macro-projects; potential rehabilitation of some vital arid zone regions now dominated by moving or movable surface granular materials using unique and unusual macro-projects; seawater flooding of land regions situated below present-day global sea-level; harnessing energy and obtaining freshwater from the world's salt-laden ocean by modern industrial means; various macro-projects designed specifically for the protection (reduction of vulnerability) of particular Earth geographical regions.
