About this book

Land subsidence is a global problem affecting major urban centres and engineering facilities (mining, water distribution and storage, railroads and ports, among others) worldwide, but the mitigation and solution of each case demands knowledge of the characteristics of the affected area. Multidisciplinary research into land subsidence phenomena, caused naturally or by human actions, demonstrates a growing need to incorporate new perspectives in risk analysis and planning of urban development in susceptible areas. The subsidence research presented at EISOLS2010 reflects the state of the art internationally.
