Surface movement can be induced by many human subsurface activities: production of natural gas, geothermal heat extraction, ground water extraction, phreatic groundwater level lowering, storage of natural gas and CO2. In this manuscript, we focus on subsidence caused by gas production. While geological interpretations, seismic campaigns and flow...

The Netherlands is subsiding faster than the sea level is rising. In large parts of the Netherlands, human intervention is causing increased subsidence, in part because of a reduction in groundwater levels. The Geological Survey of the Netherlands (GDN), part of TNO, investigates all aspects of subsidence in collaboration with other institutes....

This research underlines the need to improve water management policies for areas linked to confined karstic aquifers subjected to intensive exploitation, and to develop additional efforts towards monitoring their subsidence evolution. We analyze subsidence related to intensive use of groundwater in a confined karstic aquifer, through the use of...

Koster, K.; Cohen, K.M.; Stafleu, J., and Stouthamer, E., 2018. Using 14C-dated peat beds for reconstructing subsidence by compression in the Holland coastal plain of the Netherlands. Subsidence in the Holland coastal plain of the Netherlands was reconstructed from the vertical displacement of Holocene peat layers below their reference...

Although the shifting of deltaic river branches (avulsion) is a natural process that has become increasingly influenced by humans, the impact of early human activities as a driver of avulsion success has remained poorly explored. This study demonstrates how two important avulsions in the downstream part of the Rhine-Meuse delta, The Netherlands,...

Ground surface dynamics is one of the processes influencing the future of the Wadden Sea area. Vertical land movement, both subsidence and heave, is a direct contributor to changes in the relative sea level. It is defined as the change of height of the Earth’s surface with respect to a vertical datum. In the Netherlands, the Normaal Amsterdams...

The Groningen gas field has shown considerable compaction and subsidence since starting production in the early 1960s. The behaviour is understood from the geomechanical response of the reservoir pressure depletion. By integrating surface movement measurements and modelling, the model parameters can be constrained and understanding of the...

Hydrocarbon extraction leads to compaction of the gas reservoir, which is visible on the surface as subsidence. Subsidence measurements therefore give information on the hydrocarbon extraction and can thus be used to better estimate uncertain reservoir parameters. Normally, optical height difference measurements are taken between benchmarks,...

In recent studies on the surface subsidence caused by hydrocarbon recovery of the Groningen gas field, the predicted subsidence is overestimated if results of compaction experiments are not corrected by an empirical `upscaling factor'. In order to find an explanation for this `upscaling factor', an analysis is presented of different laboratory...

Seville, with a metropolitan population of about 1.5 million, is the capital and largest city of Andalusia (S Spain). It is the 30th most populous municipality in the European Union and contains three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Seville harbour, located about 80 km from the Atlantic Ocean, is the only river port in Spain. The city is...

Land subsidence threatens many coastal areas. Quantifying current and predicting future subsidence are essential to sustain the viability of these areas with respect to rising sea levels. Despite its scale and severity, methods to quantify subsidence are scarce. In peat-rich subsidence hot spots, subsidence is often caused by peat compression....

Satellite radar data were used to estimate subsurface model parameters of the Bergermeer gas field. Directly using combinations of the line-of-sight measurements in both ascending and descending satellite geometry provided an additional dimension in the data and avoided the introduction of errors during interpolation to horizontal and vertical...

This study uses the InSAR technique to analyse ground subsidence due to intensive exploitation of an aquifer for agricultural and urban purposes in the Montellano town (SW Spain). The detailed deformation maps clearly show that the spatial and temporal extent of subsidence is controlled by piezometric level fluctuations and the thickness of...

This paper presents a new formulation of the Rate Type Compaction Model (RTCM) for sandstone based on the isotach concept. The RTCM was originally developed to explain the loading rate dependent compaction behaviour observed in laboratory test on unconsolidated and consolidated sandstone samples and the delayed subsidence behaviour above...

The Wadden Sea is a shallow tidal sea in the north of the Netherlands where gas production is ongoing since 1986. Due to the sensitive nature of this area, gas extraction induced subsidence must remain within the "effective subsidence capacity" for the two tidal basins (Pinkegat and Zoutkamperlaag) affected. We present a probabilistic method to...
