A study of dams on the Indian subcontinent and Kosi River Shifts

A study just done by me in the 80-100 and 100-120 longitude bands shows that dams on the Indian subcontinent are causing beyond design basis forces and bending moments on the Kosi barrage and embankment system causing their breaching and catastrophic eastward shifts(this year by 120 kms). This is on account of the earthquakes caused by the dams resulting in massive upward and downward shifts at the faults alternately during the monsoon and dry season respectively. During the predam era there was mainly a westward shift of the river because there was a net uplift sloping towards the West. During the dam era there were massive net subisdences year after year resulting in dramatic Eastward shifts of the river because the subsidences sloped Eastwards. During the period 2007-2008, a massive subsidence in the hydrological year 2007 was followed by a massive uplift in the present monsoon of 2008 and the engineering structures just could not bear the strain.
Man has to design around his fallibility by giving way to reforestation on a war footing. Forests are marvels of intrinsic control of rainfall and sun to which they are exposed. Read and comment on my new URL:

Weekends to peopleig2tmean that they can have a two-day wowgold4europe good rest. For example, people gameusdcan go out to enjoy themselves or get meinwowgoldtogether with relatives and friends to talk with each storeingameother or watch interesting video tapes with the speebiewhole family.
Everyone spends agamegoldweekends in his ownmmoflyway. Within two days,some people can relax themselves by listening to music, reading novels,or watchingogeworld films. Others perhaps are more active by playing basketball,wimming ormmorpgvipdancing. Different people have different gamesavorrelaxations.
I often spend weekends withoggsalemy family or my friends. Sometimes my parents take me on a visit to their old friends. Sometimesgamersell I go to the library to study or borrow some books tommovirtexgain much knowledge. I also go to see various exhibition to broadenrpg tradermy vision. An excursion to seashore or mountain resorts is my favorite way of spending weekends. Weekends are always enjoyable for me.
