    Maedi-visna virus (MVV) is a lentivirus of sheep causing inflammation in many organs, primarily the lungs and CNS. HIV and SIV also belong to the lentivirus genus of retroviruses. MVV and HIV have many features in common, including genome organization, ...
  • Guðnason, Jónas (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2017-07-12)
    Iceland is one of the most volcanically active terrestrial regions on Earth. Hazards posed from volcanic eruptions to local population and life stock is well known in Iceland and the wider effects from volcanic activity have been elevated in recent ...
  • Budd, David A.; Troll, Valentin R.; Deegan, Frances M.; Jolis, Ester M.; Smith, Victoria C.; Whitehouse, Martin J.; Harris, Chris; Freda, Carmela; Hilton, David R.; Halldorsson, Saemundur; Ilya N., Ilya N. (Springer Nature, 2017-01-25)
    Quartz is a common phase in high-silica igneous rocks and is resistant to post-eruptive alteration, thus offering a reliable record of magmatic processes in silicic magma systems. Here we employ the 75 ka Toba super-eruption as a case study to show ...
  • Pankhurst, Matthew J.; Morgan, Daniel J.; Thordarson, Thorvaldur; Loughlin, Sue C. (Elsevier BV, 2018-07)
    How a volcano has behaved throughout its past is a guide to its future behaviour. Detailed knowledge of what preceded eruptions from specific volcanoes, and how this can be recognised in real-time, are pivotal questions of this field. Here, the physical ...
  • Rasmussen, Maja Bar (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2021-01)
    The extent of compositional and lithological heterogeneity in Earth’s convecting mantle, caused by the recycling of oceanic and continental lithosphere, has long been a subject of interest to geochemists and geophysicists. A fundamental outstanding ...
  • Elíasson, Ottó (Faculty of Science and Technology of Århus University, 2019-11)
    This thesis covers experimental work conducted within two distinct fields of cold-atom physics. The first part describes an experiment capable of spatially-selective dispersive measurements of a cold-atomic system in part or in whole, by virtue of a ...
  • Larrasoaña, Juan Cruz; Waldmann, Nicolas; Mischke, Steffen; Avni, Yoav; Ginat, Hanan (Frontiers Media SA, 2020-06-05)
    The Negev Desert in southern Israel hosts a number of late Cenozoic lacustrine and palustrine sedimentary sequences that attest for past wetter conditions in what today constitutes one of the driest deserts on Earth. These sequences are of special ...
  • Nilsson, Annika E.; Larsen, Joan Nymand (MDPI AG, 2020-01-31)
    Since the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted in 2015, efforts are underway to identify indicators for monitoring progress. However, perceptions of sustainability are scale and place specific, and there has also been a call for ...

    Nowadays, advancements in the oncology sector regarding diagnosis methods allow us to specifically detect an increased number of cancer patients, some of them in incipient stages. However, one of the main issues consists of the invasive character of ...
  • Abdullah, Nzar; Tang, Chi-Shung; Manolescu, Andrei; Gudmundsson, Vidar (MDPI AG, 2019-07-17)
    We study the transport properties of a wire-dot system coupled to a cavity and a photon reservoir. The system is considered to be microstructured from a two-dimensional electron gas in a GaAs heterostructure. The 3D photon cavity is active in the ...
  • Oddsson, Guðmundur; Hill, Andrew (Félagsfræðingafélag Íslands, 2021-04-29)
