TISOLS will be hosted in the Netherlands, a country with a 1000-year history of human-induced land subsidence. Subsidence has made the land to what it is today; a water-rich country which is one third below sea level and coping. But the Netherlands is still subsiding, causing damage to infrastructure and buildings. On top of that, land subsidence is worrisome for an already low lying country that has to cope with sea-level rise. Spring is an excellent time of the year to visit the Netherlands. One only has to mention the famous flower show at the Keukenhof. During and after the symposium half-day and full-day excursions will visit some iconic examples of land subsidence and lowlands technology.
TISOLS will be held at the Aula of the Delft University of Technology in Delft in combination with a visit to the historical city of Gouda (Monday). Both cities are located in the heart of the subsiding Dutch coastal plain.
