The land beneath many U.S. cities is sinking. This natural and man-made phenomenon, known as subsidence, can have a direct impact on housing prices and endanger critical infrastructure such as railroads and airports. Fortunately, some of the subsidence can be reversed. “It’s not cheap, and it’s not easy. But we have tools in our toolbox that allow us to implement that and see results in … months or years,” said Manoochehr Shirzaei, a professor of geophysics and remote sensing at Virginia Tech.
