Earthquakes change river courses 

An international team of scientists including, PLUS geologist Christoph von Hagke, has discovered that around 2500 years ago, an earthquake abruptly changed the course of the Ganges (India). The natural event diverted the main channel of the Ganges in what is now Bangladesh, causing a so-called “river avulsion” that drastically changed the landscape of the time.

The study has just been published in the journal Nature Communications.
