    7 Review of methods to control or arrest subsidence, by Joseph F. Poland and Working Group (file size 19 kb) Part II Case histories of land subsidence due to ground-water withdrawal Includes Chapters (all the case studies) (file size mb) 8 Types of land subsidence, by Alice S. Allen (file size 51 kb) 9 Case . Land subsidence associated with ground-water-level declines has been investigated by the U.S. Geological Survey in the Coachella Valley, California, since Ground water has been a major source of agricultural, municipal, and domestic supply in the valley since the early s. Pumping of ground water resulted in water-level declines as large as 15 meters (50 feet) through the late s.

    Shared access to reliable information, data, and tools is essential for sustainable groundwater management. This resource database contains data, case studies, technical and investigative reports, software, and other information and tools produced and used by the USGS as well as related resources from local, state and federal agencies, educational institutions, and others. Cases about food and agriculture took center stage in A case on the coffee supply chain remained the top case and cases on burgers, chocolate, and palm oil all made the top ten, according to data compiled by Yale School of Management Case Research and Development Team (SOM CRDT).

Lowering of the land surface of large areas has been a major unintended consequence of groundwater and petroleum withdrawal by humans. Approximat km 2 of land in the United States has been permanently lowered.

The decrease of land-surface elevation, known as land subsidence, typically occurs at rates measured in centimeters per year.

8, p. 7– Subsidence is the sudden sinking or gradual downward settling of the ground's surface with little or no horizontal motion. The definition of subsidence is not restricted by the rate, magnitude, or area involved in the downward movement. It may be caused by natural processes or by human activities.

In this text book, we present an engineering approach based on the Biot system of equations to predict the soil settlement due to subsidence, resulting from different causes.

Where ground-water mining or drainage of organic soils are involved, the subsidence is typically gradual and widespread, and its discovery becomes an exercise in detection.

It will take a long period of time (e.g., > 50 years) for the current groundwater level to rise to the preconsolidation level in the northern and western regions of the study area and for subsidence to cease.

In general, groundwater and aquifer systems respond slowly to human actions.Subsidence case studies: using soil suction techniques. Stephen Plante (Director of Archer Equitable Limited, Birmingham, UK) Structural Survey. ISSN: X. Publication date: 1 September Abstract.

The investigation of root‐induced clay shrinkage cases can be difficult. The soil suction technique is an invaluable aid to correct.Increasing land development threatens to exacerbate existing land-subsidence problems and initiate new ones.

Subsidence detection and mapping done by the USGS is needed to understand and manage our current and future land and water resources in areas where subsidence is .
