Jon Chorover's research involves lab and field experiments on natural soils, estuarine sediments and constituent phases in aqueous systems in order to better understand their role in controlling biogeochemical cycles and environmental quality. Primary focus areas presently include organic chemistry of soils and sediments, macromolecule-surface interactions in bacterial adhesion, reactivity of radioisotopes (137Cs and 90Sr) in the vadose zone, and soil weathering (age and climate) sequences in Hawaii.
