Out of interest I was wondering what are the 'classic' papers on the
Quaternary in Australia (difficult to include NZ in this exact train of
thought but it would be interesting to duplicate the exercise).
What are the most important (now) or landmark (in terms of development
of the science) papers that every visitor from another country (or mars)
should read about the Australian Quaternary? (for example, a visitor to
INQUA in Cairns)
I could put on my list papers on the Riverine Plain that awoke me to
the whole story of climate change in the Australian landscape. Another
would be Jim Bowler's 'Aridity in Australia' paper, or others relating
to some of the major sites from which the framework of the 'story' of
the Australian Quaternary is hung - Keilambete, Mungo, Huon Pen
(stretching the geography there) or Lynch's Crater are examples.
I'd be keen to hear the opinions of others. Either post to the list
for discussion or to me and I will collate and post back to the list.
Australian and NZ contributions equally welcome.
