    Ostracods in Icelandic freshwaters have seldom been researched, with the most comprehensive record from the 1930s. There is a need to update our knowledge of the distribution of ostracods in Iceland as they are an important link in these ecosystems as ...
  • Malinauskaite, Laura; Cook, David; Davidsdottir, Brynhildur; Ögmundardóttir, Helga; Roman, Joe (Elsevier BV, 2019-04)
    The study presents the first systematic review of the existing literature on Arctic ES. Applying the Search, Appraisal, Synthesis and Analysis (SALSA) and snowballing methods and three selection criteria, 33 publications were sourced, including ...
  • Adlard, B.; Donaldson, S. G.; Odland, J.O.; Weihe, P.; Berner, J.; Carlsen, A.; Bonefeld-Jorgensen, E. C.; Dudarev, A. A.; Gibson, J.C.; Krümmel, E.M.; Ólafsdóttir, Kristín; Abass, K.; Rautio, A.; Bergdahl, I.A.; Mulvad, G. (Informa UK Limited, 2018-01)
    For the last two and a half decades, a network of human health experts under the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP) has produced several human health assessment reports. These reports have provided a base of scientific knowledge regarding ...
  • Valsson, Trausti (University of Iceland Press, 2006)
    Hnattræn hlýnun (global warming) er eitt mest umrædda málefni í heiminum í dag, enda er hlýnunin þegar farin að hafa gífurlegar afleiðingar. Mikil gögn liggja fyrir um hvernig þættir veður- og náttúrufars eru að breytast. Gefur bókin gott yfirlit yfir ...
  • Priet-Mahéo, Morgane (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2019-09)
    As the Arctic Circle opens up due to the effects of global warming, the surrounding regions, and in particular the subarctic zone, experience both climatic and societal changes, which makes it imperative to understand the existing ecosystems. Lake ...
