  Animal Info - Indus River Dolphin
The Indus River dolphin is endemic to the rivers of the lower Indus River basin in Pakistan.
The main reason for the decline of the Indus River dolphin was the construction of numerous dams and barrages, starting in the 1930's, that have fragmented the population and reduced the amount of available habitat.
When the Indus was a free-flowing river, the Indus River dolphin would migrate upstream into the smaller tributaries during the monsoon rains and migrate downstream to the main channels in the dry season.

 Ancient Scripts: Indus Script
The main corpus of writing dated from the Indus Civilization is in the form of some two thousand inscribed seals in good, legible conditions.
Another possible indication of Dravidian in the Indus texts is from structural analysis of the texts which suggests that the language underneath is possibly agglutinative, from the fact that sign groups often have the same initial signs but different final signs.
This means that the Indus script is probably logophonetic, in that it has both signs used for their meanings, and signs used for their phonetic values.

 Decoding the Indus Script   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The discovery of the Indus Civilization by the archaeologists took the academically recognised history of India 3000 years back from the days of Asoka, and about half that number years back from the postulated period of the Aryan Invasion.
But the main problem in identifying the language of the Indus people was that they did not leave behind documents and inscriptions in their language.
While the direct connection between the late Indus script (1600 BC) and the Brahmi script could not be definitely established earlier, more and more inscriptions have been found all over the country in the last few years, dating 1000 BC, 700 BC, and so on, which have bridged the gap between the two.

 Manas: History and Politics, Indus Valley
Though the Indus Valley script remains undeciphered down to the present day, the numerous seals discovered during the excavations, as well as statuary and pottery, not to mention the ruins of numerous Indus Valley cities, have enabled scholars to construct a reasonably plausible account of the Indus Valley Civilization.
In most respects, the Indus Valley Civilization appears to have been urban, defying both the predominant idea of India as an eternally and essentially agricultural civilization, as well as the notion that the change from ‘rural’ to ‘urban’ represents something of a logical progression.
The Indus Valley people do not appear to have been in possession of the horse: there is no osteological evidence of horse remains in the Indian sub-continent before 2,000 BCE, when the Aryans first came to India, and on Harappan seals and terracotta figures, horses do not appear.

 ECONOMICS OF THE INDUS VALLEY CIVILIZATION
The Indus people did not engrave inscriptions on stones or place papyrus scrolls in the tombs of their dead; all we know of their writing is derived from the simple inscriptions on their seals.
Several efforts have been made to decipher the Indus seals, but none have truly succeeded this far; there is some notion that these seals could have been used as markers in trade situations, or that some may have represented family names.
The people of Indus may have cultivated rice on the west coast, though this is not exactly certain (there is not enough evidence to prove this statement entirely true).

 ACM Ubiquity - INDUS: A NEW PLATFORM FOR UBIQUITOUS COMPUTING
Indus Mote libraries are to be specified to enable provision of services such as timer, power and interrupt management, etc to agents hosted on mote platforms.
Indus can thus be thought of as a common language front end for generating code that can execute concurrently on a variety of 8/16/32/64 bit platforms and can seamlessly communicate with each other to implement a variety of pervasive computing applications.
In Indus, the code for synchronization and management of concurrent agents has thus been subsumed within the language itself whereas the code for managing distributed agents is provided by the library support to the Indus programming language.

 Straight Dope Staff Report: How come we can't decipher Indus script?
The Indus script, which was written in and around Pakistan over a period of several centuries centered around 2500 B.C., is the most famous undeciphered script, but there are many others.
When the first inscriptions were discovered in the 1870s in and around the Indus valley of Pakistan, and when the early cities of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro were excavated in the 1920s, archaeologists assumed that civilization and writing always went together--a complex urban culture couldn't possibly develop without writing.
The Indus script was linear, that is, usually written with symbols following one another in a line, rather than being placed randomly or in some other geometric pattern.

INDUS can handle both supply and extract systems, and can size the ducts according to the following design procedures: constant friction, constant-velocity or static-regain.
The network can be made up from branches of any combination of duct sectional shapes, and sizing limits can be imposed for each branch in the network (such as fixed size, maximum depth, maximum velocity).
INDUS can be used for sizing systems from scratch, or as a check on an existing system, when duct sizes and flow rates are specified.

 Eos/Indus Fan
The Indus Fan, although only about one third of the volume of its giant neighbor in the Bay of Bengal, is one of the largest sediment bodies in the ocean basins, totalling ~5 x 106 km3.
The modern Indus drainage basin is dominated by the high peaks of the Karakoram, Kohistan and other tectonic units of the Indus Suture Zone, rather than the High Himalaya, which form the principle sediment sources to the Bengal Fan.
The existence of a Paleogene history to Indus Suture Zone and Tibetan uplift, both within the modern Indus Fan and in sections now uplifted on the Murray Ridge, is especially intriguing because of the lack of a well dated Paleogene record available in the Indian foreland, where the entire Oligocene appears to be missing.
