Subsidence
Subsidence
Subsidence
is the motion of a surface (usually, the earth's surface) as it shifts downward relative to a datum such as sea level. The opposite of subsidence is uplift, which results in an increase in elevation. Ground subsidence is of concern to geologists, geotechnical engineers and surveyors.Contents1 Dissolution of limestone 2 Mining 3 Extraction of natural gas 4 Earthquake 5 Groundwater-related subsidence 6 Faulting induced 7 Isostatic subsidence 8 Seasonal effects 9 See also 10 ReferencesDissolution of limestone[edit] Subsidence
Subsidence
frequently causes major problems in karst terrains, where dissolution of limestone by fluid flow in the subsurface causes the creation of voids (i.e., caves). If the roof of these voids becomes too weak, it can collapse and the overlying rock and earth will fall into the space, causing subsidence at the surface
