The tectonic adjustments and the water erosion encourage subsidence and reduces the overall area of the island (Donoghue & Balsillie, 2005).According to Long (1998), New Orleans subsidence is greatly attributed to aquifer compaction related to ground water removal, oxidation of organic soils, tectonic movements and natural water removal from sediments.Clay characteristic of drying and shrinking in absence of water increases the space left by the removed water leading to slow subsidence of the overlying heavy land.Similarly, Venice subsidence has been attributed to tectonic movement, underground water harvesting, oxidation of organic soils and the type of soil.The geographical factors include isostatic adjustments and deposition in t...

The land subsidence effects can be more serious in coastal areas because it can increase the risk of inundation (Hiscock, 2002)... Land subsidence occurs for a variety reasons, but natural and manmade groundwater abstraction is one of the most contributor to this condition.As the result, there will be spreading of depress water level, land subsidence, water quality deterioration, sea water intrusion, up-coning and induced leakage of polluted water from the surface (Foster, 1998; Wangsaatmaja, 2006; Braadbaart, 1997) .The remedying efforts of the land subsidence impact involve a high economic cost (Foster, 1998).It is because differential subsidence damages roads, buildings, and other surface structures and it can seriously disrupt under...
