The storms and killings are ongoing, of course! See
The data in 4.2 shows these dust storms are determined by the properties of soils in Thar and in for example U.P. The energy required to raise the temperature of a block of soil, assumed in this study at 2000 J/kg/K and the archimedean lever effects of the enormous shock water moment changes applied at Thar and U.P are also determining factors of the crushing impulses dealt by dam dynamics. We must phase out dams by ecologically based forests over the next thousand years.
