the race was abandoned because of subsidence of the track
The early Cretaceous is characterized by relative quiescence and thermal subsidence following late Jurassic rifting.
The history during this time is characterized by uplift at the most proximal location and an increase in subsidence at the most distal location.
This is because magmatic material thickens the crust, creating uplift rather than subsidence .
Removal of water from compressible materials such as silt and clay can lead to compaction of the confining unit and subsidence of the land surface.
Tertiary sediments cause subsidence of the basin substrata 2.3 km below sea level, as a result of the sediment load.
Quaternary sedimentary fill testifies to recent subsidence of the basin.
As the basin filled, or the rate of subsidence relative to the influx of material lessened, subaerial fluvial deposits were emplaced.
Excess accommodation could be created by rapid tectonic subsidence in the centre of a tilt-block basin.
Cover for accidental damage to contents and also for flooding or subsidence are other areas that should be clarified before taking out a policy.
