A Hybrid Model to Simulate Landsubsidence due to Groundwater Recovery

  • Frans B. J. Barends
Conference paper


Due to a gradual increase of groundwater recovery and gas/oil production in the past decennia landsubsidence becomes manifest as a serious environmental problem, in particular in urban areas and wetlands.
