  • Ægisson, Hjalti Snær (Háskóli Íslands, Hugvísindasvið, Íslensku- og menningardeild, 2019-09-23)
    Í ritgerðinni er fjallað um þýdd ævintýri í íslenskum handritum. Meginheimildir rannsóknarinnar eru tvö handrit, AM 657 a-b 4to (um 1350) og AM 624 4to (um 1500). Veitt er yfirlit yfir þróun dæmisagnahefðarinnar í Evrópu frá Gregoríusi mikla og fram á ...
  • Heřmanská, Matylda (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2020-03)
    Supercritical fluids have been reported from both rift and subduction-related geothermal systems. They typically form in the vicinity of magmatic intrusions at the roots of geothermal systems upon conductive heating and boiling of the subcritical ...
  • Askew, Robert Alexander (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2020-01)
    The Breiðdalur volcanic system, eastern Iceland, comprises of a ~600 km3 central volcano, a 30 - 40 km long dyke swarm and plateau basalts erupted from this dyke swarm. The entire volcanic system was active from 10.1 to 7.8 Ma, the central volcano was ...
  • Mímisson, Kristján (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of History and Philosophy, 2020-03)
    Every person’s life can be approached from various angles. Biographies are thus never complete narratives that tell entirely of a person’s life—all the events occurred, all the relations entered, all the emotions sensed, or all the opinions uttered—but ...
  • Spittler, Nathalie (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2019-12)
    A holistic understanding of the underlying dynamics of sustainable energy system development and its effects on socio-economic and environmental aspects, in different national contexts, is necessary for improved decision making with regards to sustainable ...
  • Karlsson, Vífill (University of Iceland, Faculty of Economics, 2012)
    Iceland s population of approximately fifty thousand inhabitants did not change appreciably from the end of the settlement period in the late twelfth century until the mid-nineteenth century because of the climate and limited technology in agriculture ...

    Shear wave velocity is a fundamental parameter in soil dynamics and geotechnical earthquake engineering. The Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) method is a relatively new non-invasive technique to evaluate the near-surface shear wave velocity ...
  • Halldórsdóttir, Nanna Hlín (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of History and Philosophy, 2018-09-28)
    In recent years, the concept of vulnerability has gained momentum both in feminist philosophy and as an interdisciplinary concept. The philosopher Judith Butler is well known for exposing how hidden ontological assumptions permeate social institutions ...
  • Koistinen, Olli-Pekka (Aalto University School of Science, 2019)
    Chemical reactions and other transitions involving rearrangements of atoms can be studied theoretically by analyzing a potential energy surface defined in a high-dimensional space of atom coordinates. Local minimum points of the energy surface correspond ...
