  • Jakobsdóttir, Sólveig (The European Association of Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU), 2016-06)
    An overview is given of experiences of MOOCs in Iceland. An open online Icelandic language course from 2004 at the University of Iceland (UI) has been popular and remains open. A work group, formed in 2013 by the president of the UI, analysed the MOOC ...
  • Gunnlaugsson, Geir; Einarsdóttir, Jónína (Informa UK Limited, 2018-10-18)
    The monitoring of relevant health indicators is important in the examination of work that aims to improve health, not only globally, as for example, through the Millennium Development Goals 2000–2015, but also at the national, regional and/or sectoral, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Thorhallsson, Baldur; Joensen, Tómas (Stofnun stjórnsýslufræða og stjórnmála við Háskóla Íslands, 2015)
    This paper argues that Iceland enjoyed essential shelter, for its development and prosperity, provided by Denmark and Britain. Societal relations with Copenhagen were of fundamental importance in the preservation and evolution of Icelandic identity and ...
  • 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 ...
  • Shen, Yang; Solomon, Sean C.; Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur; Wolfe, Cecily J. (Springer Nature, 1998-09)
    Iceland, one of the most thoroughly investigated hotspots1,2,3, is generally accepted to be the manifestation of an upwelling mantle plume4. Yet whether the plume originates from the lower mantle or from a convective instability at a thermal boundary ...
  • Shen, Yang; Solomon, Sean C.; Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur; Nolet, Guust; Morgan, W.Jason; Allen, Richard M.; Vogfjörð, Kristín; Jakobsdóttir, Steinunn; Stefánsson, Ragnar; Julian, B.R.; Foulger, G.R. (Elsevier BV, 2002-04)
    Shear waves converted from compressional waves at mantle discontinuities near 410- and 660-km depth recorded by two broadband seismic experiments in Iceland reveal that the center of an area of anomalously thin mantle transition zone lies at least 100 ...
  • Minelgaite, Inga; Edvardsson, Ingi Runar; Littrell, Romie F. (SAGE Publications, 2017-04)
    This article contributes to cross-cultural management literature, by providing empirical data from two underresearched countries, to serve in the future as benchmark cultural shift research. Furthermore, it illustrates not only the insufficiency of ...
  • Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur; Menke, William; Flóvenz, Ólafur G.; Caress, David (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 1993-04-10)
    The 170 km South Iceland Seismic Tomography (SIST) profile extends from the west and across the Mid‐Atlantic Ridge spreading center in the Western Volcanic Zone and continues obliquely through the transform zone (the South Iceland Seismic Zone) to the ...
