This article brings up a new theory as to why the ancient Harappan Civilization.  The theory is that because their agriculture relied solely on the seasonal monsoon, the climate change that was incredibly detrimental to the monsoon thus initiated the collapse.  Because India and the Sahara share the same latitude without the seasonal monsoon India would be the equivalent of the Sahara.

David Arrieta's curator insight, April 25, 2014 6:06 PM

This article gives a brief back round of the Harappan history, The article states that the Harappan civilization was the most advanced ancient civilization of its time. It also explains that there isn't much evidence as to how the civilization fell but due to recent discoveries archeologists believe it was due to the declination of the monsoons.

Lottiefultz's curator insight, May 2, 2014 2:54 PM

A team of geologists have turned up evidence that climate change played a part in the collapse of the Harappan civilization due to the weakening of Monsoons. Monsoons are seasonal winds that carry moisture from the ocean to land and bring life-giving rain.The scientists say that Monsoons are good because India would still be a desert it they did not occur yearly.
