Benchmark Papers Collection

“Benchmark” papers is a concept that came to prominence in the early 1970s, when the publishing house of Dowden, Hutchison & Ross of Stroudsburg, PA organized a series of hardbound books, each focused on a collection of substantial, previously-published technical geologic papers, selected by volume-editors. Prominent among the editors was Prof. Dr. Donald R. Coates, of the SUNY-Binghamton, who brought fourth the first three volumes of the overall series, entitled Environmental Geomorphology and Landscape Conservation 1972-1973). Eventually, the series produced more than 69 volumes of titles generally within the applied geosciences. The AEG Library adopts the “Benchmark” philosophy by seeking and posting such worthy individual papers as are nominated by the Curator, as identified.
