Jay and his research group are developing applications of predictive mapping techniques in the survey of soils and ecological units across forests, farms and rangelands in Oregon, the Pacific Northwest, and elsewhere.

For more than the past decade Jay has documented temporal and spatial variability in soil development along the Saharan ecotone with focus of investigation of co-evolution of landscape and culture. An example of co-evolution of landscape and culture is soil erosion and the relationship with ancient land use practices in Cyprus and Greece.
