BEIJING, China

- Environmental experts are continuing to express concern about the ecological effects of the Three Gorges Dam, as the huge weight of water behind the dam has started to erode the Yangtze River's bank in many places.

This in turn has caused high variability in the water levels and led to a series of landslides.
