  • 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 ...
  • Eskafi, Majid (University of Iceland, 2021-06-30)
    Ports have always been evolving to satisfy the new or changing demands of stakeholders. In this unstable world, ports as dynamic systems are developed under a high degree of uncertainty. Furthermore, black-swan events, for instance, the financial crisis ...
  • 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 ...
  • Budková, Zuzana (2021-04)
    A better understanding of normal organ development can give deeper insight into which genes are harnessed by aberrant cells during cancer formation and progression. In my thesis, I have investigated two seemingly different, however, related, developmental ...
  • Halldórsdóttir, Erla Dóris (Háskóli Íslands, Hugvísindasvið, Sagnfræði- og heimspekideild, 2016-09)
