  • Benediktsdóttir, Ásta Kristín (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of Icelandic and Comparative Cultural Studies, 2019-11)
    In the late 1940s an Icelandic writer, Elías Mar (1924–2007), wrote and published novels that were set in Reykjavík and dealt with young men’s same-sex desire and sexual identity crisis. Later he became quite outspoken about his bisexuality and a ...
  • Přikryl, Jan (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2018-05)
    Fluid-rock interaction is an important process in nature, and in many industrial fields. Fluid-rock interaction can be utilized to sequester industrial gases like CO2 and H2S in porous rocks of geothermal systems. The gases are re-injected, together ...
  • Nikkola, Paavo (Faculty of Science, University of Helsinki; Faculty of Earth Sciences, University of Iceland, 2020-03-20)
    This thesis provides insights into the petrogenesis of Iceland basalts via three subprojects. The first uses olivine macrocrysts as a proxy for mantle melting conditions below Iceland, the second utilizes petrological thermobarometry to resolve the ...
  • Briem, Eiríkur (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2018)
    Brjóstkirtillinn er myndaður af greinóttum kirtilgöngum sem umluktir eru æðaþelsríkum bandvef. Brjóstakrabbamein á upptök í kirtilþekjufrumum í endum kirtilganga. Brjóstakrabbameinsfrumur nýta sér ferli sem kallast bandvefsumbreyting þekjuvefjar til ...
  • Halldórsdóttir, Erla Dóris (Háskóli Íslands, Hugvísindasvið, Sagnfræði- og heimspekideild, 2016-09)
    Þessi ritgerð er unnin út frá heimildum um tímabil sem tvær heilbrigðisstarfsstéttir á Íslandi gengu í gegnum á 120 árum, frá 1760–1880. Læknastétt var eingöngu skipuð körlum en í yfirsetukvennastétt gátu bæði lærðir sem ólærðir karlar og konur ...
  • Elm Heintz, Kasper (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2019-07)
    In the early Universe, most of the cold neutral gas that will later form into individual stars and galaxies is practically invisible to us. These neutral gas reservoirs can, however, be illuminated by bright cosmic lightsources such as gamma-ray bursts ...
  • Guðbrandsson, Jóhannes (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2019-04-26)
    The four morphs of Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) in Lake Þingvallavatn, Iceland, which differ in many phenotypic traits related to morphology, life history, and feeding ecology, are believed to have evolved locally within the lake after the retreat ...
  • 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 ...
  • Benediktsdóttir, Ásdís (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2019-06-28)
    Iceland is located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and is the surface exposure of the ridge system on land. The influence of the plume has been shown to reach towards the south at least as far as the Bight Transform Fault. The ridge system in Iceland has ...
  • Kristbjornsdottir, Adalbjorg (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2016-12)
    Background and aims: Previous studies in geothermal and volcanic areas have shown high risk of certain types of cancers. The aim was to study the association between residence in geothermal areas and the incidence and mortality of cancer in ...
  • Eggertsson, Hannes (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2019-06)
    A fundamental requisite for genetic studies is an accurate determination of sequence variation. While human genome sequence diversity is increasingly well characterized, there is a need for efficient ways to utilize this knowledge in sequence analysis. ...
  • Steinhaeuser, Sarah Sophie (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-08)
    The microenvironment is increasingly being recognized as a key player in supporting cancer progression. Therefore, investigating heterotypic interactions between cancer cells and their microenvironment is important for improving our understanding ...
  • Sigurvinsson, Jón Ásgeir (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, 2019)
    Hinn svokallaði þakkarsálmur Hiskía konungs í 38. Kafla Jesaja hefur löngum þótt afar erfiður viðfangs, ekki síst vegna meints bágborins varðveisluástands 16. vers, sem auk v. 17a, hefur verið dæmt óskiljanlegt og jafnvel kallað “martröð riskýrandans” ...
  • Eddudóttir, Sigrún Dögg (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2016-12)
    For most of the Holocene the main driver of vegetation and environmental change in Iceland was climate, although intermittent volcanic events had short term impacts. This changed with the Norse colonisation in the late 9th century AD, from when land ...
  • Knobloch, Stephen (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2019-05)
    Sponges (phylum Porifera) are considered one of the oldest extant lineages of the animal kingdom. Their close association with microorganism makes them suitable for studying early animal-microbe symbiosis and expanding our understanding of host-microbe ...
  • Guðmundsdóttir, Sigrún Margrét (2020-06)
    Hrollvekjur um reimleikahús snúast oftar en ekki um heila, enda getur verið reimt í heilanum ekki síður en í húsum. Afturgangan í sinni einföldustu mynd hverfist um fortíð sem snýr aftur til að ásækja einstaklinga (sögupersónur eða lifendur), en þessi ...
