Short summary
Multi-layer aquifer systems with deep confined aquifers and thick compressible clay layers are the key geological conditions responsible for the development of land subsidence in the North China Plain. Several groundwater regulation scenarios were designed and simulated with a groundwater model, and assessed using a multi-criteria fuzzy pattern recognition model. This approach is proven to be very useful for scientific analysis of sustainable development and utilization of groundwater resources.
