Short summary
The results indicated that The surface location of Gaoliying fissure is controlled by the underlying normal fault activity, and over pumping further exacerbates development of the ground fissure; when the groundwater level declines, obvious differential settlement occurs at both sides of the ground fissure. The fault activity contributes about 28-39 percent, and the groundwater contributes about 61-72 percent to the deformation of the ground fissure, respectively.
