Terrible life in Qarchak Prison in Varamin of Tehran
Tehran’s drastic sinking exposed by satellite data
Tehran is one of the most populated cities in western Asia. The latest data put new figures on the problem. Subsidence, caused by growing populations and increased extraction of underground water, oil and gas, is a problem in cities globally. For example, previous satellite measurements have shown that some areas of Jakarta are sinking at more than 20 centimetres per year 4 , and the San Joaquin Valley in California — home to several cities — by up to 60 centimetres per year. Huge fissures — several kilometres in length and up to four metres wide and deep — have opened up in the land to the southeast of Tehran, some of which are threatening to topple power-transmission lines and buckle railways. And the growth of underground cracks sometimes produces sudden sinkholes. Such farmland is becoming unviable, because the cracks drain irrigation water from the surface and leave crops parched.
