Science - Geology / waterflow through soil
German term or phrase: Fliefs
Zunehmende Dichtheit infolge Sackens zeigte sich besonders deutlich bei einer gelegentlich Erstattung eines Gutachtens nach Angabe des Verfassers vorgenommenen Untersuchung von Fliefs, einem feinen thonigen Sand des westfälischen Kohlengebietes.

Any help parsing this sentence would be much appreciated. The part I'm having trouble with is "Erstattung eines Gutachtens" - there seems to be something missing ion front of Erstattung.

Thanks so much!
