  • Bragadóttir, Kristín (Háskóli Íslands, Hugvísindasvið, Sagnfræði- og heimspekideild, 2017-06)
    Bandaríkjamaðurinn Willard Fiske, prófessor í norrænum fræðum og bókavörður í Cornell-háskóla í Íþöku, New York-fylki árin 1868–1883 eignaðist næststærsta safn íslenskra rita utan Íslands, aðeins Konunglega bókasafnið í Kaupmannahöfn varðveitti meira ...
  • Blischke, Anett (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2020-05-15)
    This study focused on the tectono-magmatic reconstruction of the Jan Mayen microcontinent (JMMC) and Iceland Plateau Rift (IPR) in context to the breakup and opening processes of the Northeast Atlantic region. Joint interpretation of densely spaced ...
  • Jóhannesdóttir, Þórdís Edda (Hugvísindastofnun. Háskóli Íslands, 2016-11)
    Jómsvíkinga saga er meðal elstu varðveittu veraldlegra sagna á Íslandi. Hún hefur að öllum líkindum verið skrifuð á fyrri hluta 13. aldar en er varðveitt í fjórum ólíkum gerðum frá miðöldum í jafnmörgum handritum. Fræðileg umfjöllun um söguna hefur ...
  • Valsdóttir, Kristín (Univeristy of Iceland, School of Education, 2019-01)
    This research is about the learning journeys of artists at the Icelandic University of the Arts studying to become arts educators. This entails looking at their background and former experience and how that affects and shapes the educational practices ...
  • 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 ...
  • Johannesdottir, Lilja (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2017-06)
    The development and expansion of agriculture throughout the world has been a major driver of biodiversity loss in recent decades. Icelandic agriculture is currently not as intense and widespread as in many other western countries, and the effects of ...
  • Tarsi, Matteo (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of Icelandic and Comparative Cultural Studies, 2020-05-18)
    This thesis addresses the coexistence and interplay of loanwords and their corresponding endogenous synonyms during the Old and Middle Icelandic period (12th c.–1550), i.e. in a period with no ideologically rooted nor overtly expressed language purism. ...
  • Thorman, Rachel Megan (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2017-10-27)
    Focused electron beam induced deposition (FEBID) is a nanofabrication technique wherein electron-induced reactions are used to deposit pure metals from organometallic precursors under the area of a primary electron beam. It can be used to directly ...
  • T P, Ragesh Kumar (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2017-12-15)
    Focused electron beam induced deposition (FEBID) is a direct-write 3D nanofabrication technique, which works on the principle of electron-induced molecular decomposition. In FEBID, a high-energy focused electron beam dissociates the precursor molecules ...
  • Basil, Sheeba Santhini (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2018)
    Lichens are a classic example of mutualism, where both partners benefit from each other. The mycobiont serves the photobiont by providing shelter, nutrients, and moisture from the environment and receives carbohydrates and sometimes fixed nitrogen from ...
  • Guðnason, Jónas (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2017-07-12)
    Iceland is one of the most volcanically active terrestrial regions on Earth. Hazards posed from volcanic eruptions to local population and life stock is well known in Iceland and the wider effects from volcanic activity have been elevated in recent ...
  • Kokorsch, Matthias (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2018-06)
    Designing a truly sustainable fisheries management regime has been a challenge internationally. Iceland is not an exception in this regard. Icelandic fisheries and their management has gone through tremendous changes since the 1980s. The implementation ...
  • Belart, Joaquín M. C. (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2018-11-29)
    The mass balance of a glacier is strongly connected to climate. At high latitudes, mass balance is typically controlled by snow accumulation during the winter and the glacier ablation during the summer. In Iceland, direct mass balance observations ...
  • Eiríksdóttir, Védís Helga (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medcine, 2016-11)
    Background and aims: Macroeconomic fluctuations have shown various effects on population health, but the evidence base for their influence on maternal health and birth outcomes is scarce and inconclusive. The overall aim of this thesis was to examine ...
  • Anderson, Kimberley (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2019-04)
    Transcriptional regulatory mechanisms drive the maturation of B cells to plasma cells, with a dramatic transcriptional rewiring taking place during the transition. This rewiring is dependent on a number of factors, including the transcription factor B ...
  • Juhl, Michael (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2018-10)
    The polarization of electromagnetic waves (the direction of transversal vibration of its electric field vector) provides essential information about the emitting sources and scattering objects. Its measurement, i.e., optical polarimetry, has a history ...
  • Snæbjörnsdóttir, Sandra Ósk (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2017-04-19)
    In-situ carbonation of basaltic rocks could provide a carbon storage solution for the long term. Permanence is essential for the success and public acceptance of carbon storage. The aim of this study was twofold, to evaluate and make a first estimate ...
  • Clark, Deirdre (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2019-10-23)
    The reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the atmosphere is currently one of the main challenges facing humanity. One solution is carbon capture from concentrated sources and directly from the atmosphere, and long term storage in rocks. Basaltic ...
  • Neely, Rebecca Anna (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2017)
    Molybdenum isotopes are used to quantify changes in Earth’s paleoredox conditions but their application relies upon a simplified model in which rivers dominate the ocean input with minor contributions from hydrothermal fluids. The effect of groundwater ...
