unvollständige Abdeckung
Explanation:
i.e. incomplete covereage
My mother tongue tells me that "Bedeckung" is covereage in the sense of something a little impermanent, like with a tarpaulin, or a layer of earth.
"Abdeckung" has both the sense of "complete coverage" and therefore something more permamnent to it. Thats why I like "Abdeckung" better in this context.
