  • Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur (Iceland Glaciological Society and Geoscience Society of IcelandJöklarannsóknafélags Íslands og Jarðfræðafélags Íslands, 2008)
    Is Iceland a hotspot, with ridge-centered plume? In Iceland vigorous volcanism has built up a plateau 3.0 km higher than at a normal mid-ocean ridge with 3 to 4 times thicker crust than average oceanic crust. This volcanism can be associated with ...
  • Tonti-Filippini, Justin A. D.; Brown, Maxwell C. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-07-30)
    The extensive lava piles of Iceland contain a unique record of geomagnetic field variations spanning the past ~ 16 Ma. Since the 1950s, palaeomagnetic data have been obtained from over 9400 Icelandic lavas. We have compiled all palaeomagnetic data ...
  • Jóhannsdóttir, Valgerður; Ólafsson, Jón Gunnar (Stofnun stjórnsýslufræða og stjórnmála við Háskóla Íslands, 2018-05-31)
    The news media around the world has experienced drastic changes in recent decades, and the Icelandic media is no exception. These changes originate in political, economic and not least technological developments. In this article we map key developments ...

    Icelandic fisheries have gone through tremendous changes since the 1980s and the gradual implementation of individual transferable quotas. The paper investigates to what extent the power of different stakeholders in the fisheries management system ...
  • Björnsson, Sveinbjörn (Hið íslenzka náttúrufræðifélag, 1976)
    Larger earthquakes in Iceland occur mainly in two zones, a narrow E-W trending zone in S-Iceland and 75 km broad zone off the northern coast. Destruction and ground displacement due to the earthquake sequences of J784 (Ms 7.5-8), 1896 Mg 7-7.5) and ...
  • Tryggvason, Eysteinn (Hið íslenzka náttúrufræðifélag, 1954)
    The seismic activity was relatively low in Iceland during this year. No large shock occurred, and no damage was done by earthquakes. The largest shock came on February 10th, with epicenter off the north coast (about 66°40'N, 17°0'W), origin time l ...
  • Tryggvason, Eysteinn (Hið íslenzka náttúrufræðifélag, 1959)
    During this period, three seismograph stations were operated in Iceland, at Reykjavík, Akureyri and Vík. A new seismograph station was erected at Kirkjubæjarklaustur (Síða) in 1958, where one vertical Willmore seismograph is operated. The seismic ...
  • Tryggvason, Eysteinn (Hið íslenzka náttúrufræðifélag, 1956)
    The seismograph station at Reykjavik was operated with three short period Sprengnether seismographs during these years. New stations were erected at Akureyri (65°40.3' N, 18°06.0' W) and at Vík (63°25.3' N, 19°01.0' W). At both these stations, one ...
  • Grimsdottir, Elsa; Edvardsson, Ingi Runar (SAGE Publications, 2018-10)
    The aim of this article is to present findings on knowledge management (KM) and knowledge creation, as well as open innovation in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Iceland. Two SME company case studies are presented in the form of a case ...

    The 2014–15 Bárðarbunga–Holuhraun rifting event comprised the best-monitored dyke intrusion to date and the largest eruption in Iceland in 230 years. A huge variety of seismicity was produced, including over 30,000 volcano-tectonic earthquakes (VTs) ...
  • Edvardsson, Kristinn Nikulás; Păstrăv, Cezara; Benediktsson, Karl (Elsevier BV, 2018-08)
    Consolidation of the fishing industry worldwide is an issue heavily debated among scholars. Many economists have argued for its necessity, while others – such as sociologists, anthropologists and geographers – have pointed out negative effects of ...

    To date, most mass balance studies in Iceland have concentrated on the three largest ice caps. This study turns the focus toward smaller Icelandic glaciers, presenting geodetic mass-balance estimates for 14 of them (total area 1,005 km2 in 2017) from ...
