The NAM was obliged to carry out a Long-term subsidence study in the Wadden Sea Region before July 1st 2015. The purpose of the study was to provide an improved understanding of the subsidence process induced by gas extraction in the Wadden Sea Region. The study was requested by the Inspector General of Mines and carried out by NAM as well as different other parties on behalf of NAM. The project started on 1 January 2013 and ran until 1 July 2015.
The Wadden Academy established an independent Scientific Steering Committee to review, provide guidance and advise on the outcome of the Long-term subsidence study in the Wadden Sea Region.
