Short summary
Land subsidence caused by the overexploitation of the aquifers manifest with an increasing frequency in several regions of Greece. Among the sites to be presented in the current paper is the wider area of Kalochori village in the eastern part of Thessaloniki plain, the east and west Thessaly plain in central Greece and the region extending to the west – southwest of the Anargyri opencast coalmine in West Macedonia, Greece.
