Subsidence Management Handbook

 
Naresh C. Saxena (Author)
Synopsis

Subsidence movements due to various natural and manmade activities have been attracting attention of the people all over the globe because these movements have been affecting the life in many ways due to the impacts the movements cause to the surface, sub-surface and underground properties. Among the various subsidence causing activities the author has considered the underground mining in sedimentary deposits and withdrawal of water from the underground sources as the most important from the point of view of Indian scenario.

Underground mining of sedimentary deposits in India has been going on for more than 225 years and as yet there is practically no indigenous literature available for the use of the mining operators, planners, students, etc. All these people in the country have to depend on the foreign literature although the knowledge of subsidence movements and their management is not only essential for underground mine planning but also for getting the environmental clearance and ensuring the safety of the underground workings. An analysis of the indigenously available literature revealed that there is an urgent necessity of simple but effective guidelines useful to the mining operators, etc. Therefore, the author has made an effort in this book to make the operators aware of the importance of subsidence management and then of the methodology for the management so that in majority of the situations they can take their own decisions and for the complicated cases they can seek expert advice.

The activity of the withdrawal of water from the underground sources in the country is many decades old as for the various purposes, e.g., agriculture, industries, and domestic uses, water from these sources is being pumped out. Although, globally the subsidence movements due to this activity have attracted attention, the concern in India has not yet come to any age as hardly any literature is available on this subject.
