Lucas Zoet's primary field of research focuses on understanding the physics of glacier motion through field observation, laboratory experiments, and theoretical analysis. His work sits at the intersection of glaciology and glacial geology. He uses a variety of geophysical and geological methods to explore glacial processes in modern glaciers as well as landforms left behind by Pleistocene glaciers. His role in GHOST is to use the passive seismic observations to understand how Thwaites is slipping.
