English translation:induced subsidence
Explanation:
... or possibly localized subsidence.
Induced would probably be further defined, e.g., earthquake-induced, mining-induced, production-induced.
The German term was used in a German article in connection with a subsequently built silo that might have caused Mitnahmesetzung.
