    A total of 362 successive lava flows, which were extruded at a regular rate between t= 6.7 and 1.6 Myr in the Borgarfjördur area of Western Iceland, have been subjected to palaeomagnetic study. In contrast to the result of a study by Wilson & McElhinny ...

    Magmatic volatile phases within crustal silicic magma domains influence key volcanic processes such as the build up to eruptions and formation of magmatic-hydrothermal ore deposits. However, the extent and nature of fluid-melt interaction in such ...

    To elucidate the dynamics of terrestrial leaf waxes in a high-altitude lake system, we performed compound-specific radiocarbon analysis (CSRA) of long-chain n-alkanes in two sediment core sections from Lake Karakul (Pamirs, Tajikistan) and in surface ...

    Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDC) functions as the main determinant of the respiro-fermentative balance because it converts pyruvate to acetyl-coenzyme A (CoA), which then enters the TCA (tricarboxylic acid cycle). PDC is repressed by the pyruvate ...

    Under dynamic efficiency, a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) pension scheme helps the current generation of retirees but hurts future generations because they are forced to save via a return-dominated scheme. Abandoning it is deemed welfare-improving but typically ...
  • Garcia, Carlos Argaez; Cánovas, M. J.; Parra, J. (2021-07-14)
    We are concerned with finite linear constraint systems in a parametric framework where the right-hand side is an affine function of the perturbation parameter. Such structured perturbations provide a unified framework for different parametric models ...
  • Alyatkin, S.; Sigurðsson, Helgi; Askitopoulos, A.; Töpfer, J. D.; Lagoudakis, P. G. (2021-09-22)
    One of the recently established paradigms in condensed matter physics is examining a system’s behaviour in artificial potentials, giving insight into phenomena of quantum fluids in hard-to-reach settings. A prominent example is the matter-wave scatterer ...
  • Allaart, Lis; Schomacker, Anders; Larsen, Nicolaj K.; Nørmark, Egon; Rydningen, Tom Arne; Farnsworth, Wesley Randall; Retelle, Michael; Brynjólfsson, Skafti; Forwick, Matthias; Kjellman, Sofia E. (2021-01-01)
    The response of glaciers and ice caps to past climate change provides important insight into how they will react to ongoing and future global warming. In Svalbard, the Holocene glacial history has been studied for many cirque and valley glaciers. ...

    Climate change is amplified in the Arctic, and establishing baseline data for its current character is important. Here we present a map of the geomorphology of the Femmilsjøen area, Spitsbergen, northern Svalbard. The regional physiography is characterised ...

    Electric vehicles (EVs) are often considered a potential solution to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions originating from personal transport vehicles, but this has also been questioned due to their high production emissions. In this study, we ...

    Horses in Iceland have been isolated for more than 1,000 yr but still harbor a similar range of gastrointestinal parasites as do horses across the world. The long isolation of the horses and their parasites presumably means that no resistance genes ...
