All Ross Jones
I’ve always liked my name. A little unique although I’ve run into a nice handful of other Rosses out there. But almost never a Ross Jones.
When we moved to Nashville in 1994, we started getting phone calls for a local High School coach also named Ross Jones. Guess I was had a better ranking in the phone book. Anyway, I’ve been getting more curious about just how many people withe the Ross Jones name are out there. So I’ve put together a compilation of all the references to Ross Jones that I can find on the web. There’s quite a bit more than I imagined.

Ross GeoScience Jones
Applying for a Master of Sciences degree in geosciences, Ross Jones wrote a thesis presented to the faculty at New York University at Albany about the structural geology of the northern Galice Formation, western Klamath Mountains in Oregon and California. “Fundamental conclusions obtained in this study are:
1) The Galice Formation is tightly folded on both outcrop and regional scales.
2) There is a north-to-south increase in Nevadan regional metamorphic grade and penetrative strain. This gradient may reflect a small southward component of underthrusting along the Orleans fault.
3) Nevadan vergence from folds and thrusts in the Galice is dominantly northwestward.
4) Most Nevadan thrusting in the Galice took place after the main-phase penetrative deformation and peak metamorphism. This ductile-to-brittle transition may have resulted from continued underthrusting during regional uplift.”
