Tenth International Symposium on Land Subsidence (TISOLS)
Living with Subsidence

Note: the deadline for abstracts has been postponed to 12 May 2019

Land subsidence, or land-level lowering, is a major problem that threatens the viability and sustainable economic development for millions of people throughout the world, especially in (but not restricted to) highly urbanized coastal areas. It is often a result of overexploitation of groundwater resources. The total costs globally amount up to many billions of dollars annually.
