The Name

It might come as a surprise but "Ross" is not an acronym! It is  a name that links Ross back sands,  a favourite place in my native Northumberland, north-east England, with the British Antarctic Survey ship RRS  James Clark Ross, on which I did several research surveys in the Southern Ocean, and the Ross Sea, which has been the focus of a lot of time working with CCAMLR including the creation of the world’s largest high-seas marine protected area.   Of course there is also "albert" ross.
