His books Applied Geochemistry (1974), Geoquimica Aplicada (1991), Natural and Anthropogenic Hazards in Development Planning (1996), Environmental Geochemistry of Potentially Toxic Metals (2001/2002), Demands of Expanding Populations and Development Planning (2008), Countering 21st Century Social-Environmental Threats to Growing Global Populations (2015), Mitigation of dangers from Natural and Anthropogenic Hazards (2016), and Cities and Mega-Cities (2018) reflect Dr. Siegel’s cumulative teaching and research experience in theoretical and applied exploration and environmental geochemistry, and his work to alleviate or eliminate environmental problems related to physical, social, chemical, and economic conditions associated with planned development projects.
Adaptations of Coastal Cities to Global Warming, Sea Level Rise, Climate Change and Endemic Hazards (eBook)
This book discusses the identification of, solutions to, and management of threats to high population coastal cities and their seaports from global warming, climate change and endemic hazards. These include prevention of sea water intrusion of freshwater coastal aquifers, emplacement of barriers that mitigate the threats from sea level rise, and inundation of urban centers plus those from storm surges that cause flooding and salination of inshore terrain. The book assesses mitigation of the effects of extreme weather events such as drought, and major flooding from heavy rainfall on coastal urban centers, or on associated drainage basins.
