UCF Simulator to Help Predict Sinkholes

Sinkholes happen without warning, swallowing up homes, cars and sometimes people.

It’s a natural phenomenon that no one can predict – but researchers at the University of Central Florida want to change that. They are working on developing a way that may help homeowners and planning agencies predict sinkholes and areas prone to them. The research team created a mini-sinkhole simulator to help understand what triggers them.
