    Icelandic settlement (Landnám) period farmsteads offer opportunities to explore the nature and timing of anthropogenic activities and environmental impacts of the first Holocene farming communities. We employ Bayesian statistical modelling of archaeological, ...

    Bayesian hierarchical modeling can assist the study of glacial dynamics and ice flow properties. This approach will allow glaciologists to make fully probabilistic predictions for the thickness of a glacier at unobserved spatiotemporal coordinates, and ...

    Baleen whales face the challenge of finding patchily distributed food in the open ocean. Their relatively well-developed olfactory structures suggest that they could identify the specific odours given off by planktonic prey such as krill aggregations. ...
  • Guðjónsdóttir, Guðbjört; Loftsdóttir, Kristín (Informa UK Limited, 2016-06-23)
    In the aftermath of the financial crisis that hit Iceland in October 2008, increased numbers of Icelanders migrated to Norway to seek employment due to difficult economic circumstances in Iceland. Using critical perspectives from postcolonial studies ...

    Growth in sodium chloride (NaCl) is known to induce stress in non-halophilic microorganisms leading to effects on the microbial metabolism and cell structure. Microorganisms have evolved a number of adaptations, both structural and metabolic, to ...
  • Caputo, Andrea; Zavala Franco, Jesus; Blas, Diego (Elsevier BV, 2018-03)
    As a binary pulsar moves through a wind of dark matter particles, the resulting dynamical friction modifies the binary’s orbit. We study this effect for the double disk dark matter (DDDM) scenario, where a fraction of the dark matter is dissipative ...

Guillermo; Gartzia, M; Soininen, E.M.; Christie, K.S.; Speed, J.D.M.; Ravolainen, V.T.; Forbes, B.C.; Gauthier, G.; Horstkotte, T.; Hoset, K.S.; Hoye, T.T.; Jónsdóttir, Ingibjörg Svala; Lévesque, E.; Mörsdorf, M.A.; Olofsson, J.; Wookey, P.A.; Hik, D.S. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2016)
    Aim. Understanding the forces shaping biodiversity patterns, particularly for groups of organisms with key functional roles, will help predict ecosystem responses to environmental changes. Our aim was to evaluate the relative role of different drivers ...
  • Lowe, David A.; Thorlacius, Larus (Springer Nature, 2018-01)
    Holographic theories representing black holes are expected to exhibit quantum chaos. We argue if the laws of quantum mechanics are expected to hold for observers inside such black holes, then such holographic theories must have a mean field approximation ...
  • Amado, Irene; Sundborg, Bo; Thorlacius, Larus; Wintergerst, Nico (Springer Nature, 2018-03)
    The emergent nature of spacetime geometry and black holes can be directly probed in simple holographic duals of higher spin gravity and tensionless string theory. To this end, we study time dependent thermal correlation functions of gauge invariant ...
  • Spagnol, Simone; Hoffmann, Rebekka; Herrera Martínez, Marcelo; Unnthorsson, Runar (Elsevier BV, 2018-07)
    Translating visual representations of real environments into auditory feedback is one of the key challenges in the design of an electronic travel aid for visually impaired persons. Although the solutions currently available in the literature can lead ...

    Life course data on obesity may enrich the quality of epidemiologic studies analysing health consequences of obesity. However, achieving such data may require substantial resources. We investigated the use of body silhouettes in adults as a tool to ...
