Assistant Professor of Geoscience

Lucas Zoet’s research largely focuses on understanding the physics of glacier motion through field observation, laboratory experiments, and theoretical analysis. His work largely sits at the intersection of glaciology and glacial geology. He uses a variety of geophysical and geological methods to explore glacial processes by traveling to modern day glaciers. He also uses the geologic landforms left behind by Pleistocene glaciers to understand how past glaciers interacted with the solid earth in efforts to determine dominant glacier processes. Wisconsin is a world class location to study a glacial deposits left by the Late Pleistocene Glaciers
