Abstract


Measurements of the natural convergence of salt excavation at large depth exceeding 900 meters are conducted for 20 years by OBR Chemkop in Polkowice-Sieroszowice. In 2009 and 2010 the range of measurements increased to a dozen or so new stations. A long term observation of the excavation points revealed characteristic phases of the convergence phenomenon. In the first years of the salt excavations existence, values of linear convergence ranged from -100 mm/year to more than -600 mm/year. However, for excavations older than ten years, average speed of convergence varied from -30 mm/year to -100 mm/year. This is a typical graph of deformation for excavations on great depth in salt deposit.
