Englisch - Englisch
The process of becoming less active or severe
A sinking of something to a lower level, especially of part of the surface of the Earth due to underground excavation or seismic activity
{n} a sinking, a tendency downwards
Sinking of the ground surface due to the removal of large quantities of water or petroleum from the pores of underlying sediments or rocks
A sinking or downward motion of air, often seen in anticyclones It is most prevailent when there is colder, denser air aloft It is often used to imply the opposite of atmospheric convection
A form of earth movement, excluded in most property policies
a gentle movement of a broad area of crust that does not experience appreciable deformation
sinking down of part of the earth's crust due to underground excavation, such as removal groundwater
When there is subsidence in a place, the ground there sinks to a lower level. the process by which an area of land sinks to a lower level than the land surrounding it, or a building begins to sink into the ground
The settling of sediment to a lower level than originally
A descending motion of air in the atmosphere, usually with the implication that the condition extends over a broad area
Movement of the land on which property is situated A structure built on a hillside may slide down the hill due to earth movement caused by heavy rains This is different from earthquake damage
the sudden collapse of something into a hollow beneath it
the vertical fall of earth, usually caused by the loss of underground water or gas support, sometimes resulting from man-made pumping and sometimes from seismic action
Sinking or downwarping of a part of the earth's surface
The action of land sinking to a lower level
an abatement in intensity or degree (as in the manifestations of a disease); "his cancer is in remission"
The act or process of subsiding
Lowering or sinking of the Earth's surface
The lowering of the strata, including the surface, due to underground excavations
a descending motion of air in the atmosphere occurring over a rather broad area
the settling of waste piles or other areas at mine sites which causes the surface of the land to sink
Decrease in the elevation of land surface due to tectonic, seismic, or artificial forces, without removal of surface material
The lowering of the Earth's surface, caused by such factors as compaction, a decrease in groundwater, or the pumping of oil
{i} gradual sinking of land caused by natural shifts or human activity; (Medicine) remittal, remission, decrease in the manifestations (of a disease); sinking in bone
A sinking of an area of the Earth's crust due to fluid withdrawal and pressure decline
Compression of soft aquifer materials in a confined aquifer due to pumping of water from the aquifer Subsidence has occurred in Las Vegas Valley within the Study Unit
Sinking air that is associated with warming air and little cloud formation
A localized gradual downward settling or sinking of a surface with little or no horizontal movement
A settling of the ground surface caused by the collapse of porous formations that result from withdrawal of large amounts of groundwater, oil, or other underground materials
A sinking or downward motion of air, often seen in anticyclones It is most prevalent when there is colder, denser air aloft It is often used to imply the opposite of atmospheric convection
The settling or sinking of a surface as a result of the loss of support from underlying soils or strata
a gradual sinking to a lower level
