Short summary
The Houston metropolitan area represents one of the largest subsidence areas in the USA. The groundwater regulations enforced by the Harris-Galveston Subsidence District have successfully halted subsidence in areas that were once heavily subsiding. It is evident that groundwater resources and subsidence are manageable. This study demonstrated an approach of using publicly available GPS data to conduct millimeter-accuracy land subsidence studies in an urban environment.
