Description:

For centuries, the urban area of Venice has been coping with subsidence it's been sinking into the sea. Tides from the Adriatic and slow depeletion of the region's aquifer have led to the city's slow subsidence. Tidal barrier projects and strict limits on aquifer use have successfully combatted Venice's subsidence.
