::FY2003 Field Station Annual Report
  (1) Overview:
          A field station has not yet been established in the South Asia area. This is due to the fact that the research sites of faculty members and graduate students are widely dispersed across the region, and that there would be little benefit to establishing an FS. However, the necessary facilities for their studies are accommodated by Dr. B Mohapatra, a former ASAFAS visiting professor, at Jawaharlal Nehru University, which substitutes for the functions of an FS.
