  • Basil, Sheeba Santhini (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2018)
    Lichens are a classic example of mutualism, where both partners benefit from each other. The mycobiont serves the photobiont by providing shelter, nutrients, and moisture from the environment and receives carbohydrates and sometimes fixed nitrogen from ...
  • Andrésdóttir, Valgerður (Agricultural University of Iceland, 2018)
    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 ...
  • MIBEI, GEOFFREY (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2021-10)
    In this study, the magmatic evolution and the eruptive history of the Paka volcanic complex are investigated and its geothermal reservoir is assessed. The study comprises two parts. The first part deals with the eruptive history, magma evolution, and ...
  • 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 ...
  • Stefánsdóttir, Olga Ásrún; Munkejord, Mai Camilla; Sveinbjarnardóttir, Eydís Kristín (2021-09-26)
    Despite the negative implications for their own health, spouses continue to support each other and maintain their couplehood for as long as possible, including when one of them develops a severe illness. However, with some exceptions, the experiences ...
  • Klausen, Kristján Óttar (2022-10-07)
    Majorana zero modes have recently been proposed as a solution to obtain fault-tolerant quantum computation. They are quasiparticle excitations in quantum systems at the nanoscale with the potential to function as qubits, the basic building blocks of ...
  • Gústafsdóttir, Sonja Stelly; Sigurðardóttir, Árún Kristín; Mårtensson, Lena; Árnadóttir, Sólveig Ása (2022-12)
    Background Older people have been identified as having lower health literacy (HL) than the general population average. Living in sparsely populated Arctic regions involves unique health challenges that may influence HL. The research aim was to explore ...
  • 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 ...
