Abstract

Space technology is a new technology that provides cost-effective measurements of past displacement data. Based on these displacement measurements, within the framework of the European Space Agency’s GMES Terrafirma Project, an improved geotechnical design approach is proposed combining geotechnical modelling and space measurements to predict ground subsidence induced by the lowering of the water table. Then the proposed methodology is applied to predict future displacement at the Thessaly plain - Carla region, Greece due to excessive pumping.

Predicting Ground Subsidence Induced by Pumping Combining Space Measurements and Geotechnical Modeling: Application in the Thessaly Region, Greece
