In India a National Working Group has been formed under the chairmanship of Sri A. K. Agrawal, Deputy Director General, Geological Survey of India, Kokata. The working group held a meeting in Kolkata on 2 September, 2004, to consider ways and means of contributing to the IGCP Project 474 aim of providing images of the Earth's crust to at least Moho depths.
In Georgia a working group within the Institute of Geology, Georgian Academy of Sciences, Tbilisi, is conducting research into the nature of the continental lithosphere as a contribution to the aims and objectives of the International Lithosphere Project (ILP). The research is linked to the search for oil/gas and the research into the nature of active fault zones and earthquake risk.
