    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 ...

    This thesis is a study of the aesthetics of Icelandic landscapes. The aim of the thesis is to gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of landscape and the values which are derived from the aesthetic experience of Icelandic landscapes, and to think ...
  • Palsson, Frosti (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2017-09)
    In remote sensing, acquired optical images of high spectral resolution have usually a lower spatial resolution than images of lower spectral resolution. This is due to physical, cost and complexity constraints. To make the most of the available imagery, ...
  • Wittmann, Monika (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Earth Sciences, 2017-01)
    Located on the mid-Atlantic ridge, Iceland has the largest volcaniclastic desert on Earth, created by glacio-fluvial processes and frequent volcanic eruptions. Due to its location along the North Atlantic Storm track, Iceland frequently experiences ...
  • Þorleifsdóttir, Ragna Hlín (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2016-12)
    Psoriasis is a chronic immune-mediated inflammatory skin disease with a strong genetic background and profound effects on psychosocial wellbeing. Streptococcal throat infections are known to trigger or exacerbate psoriasis in some patients, and several ...
  • Sigurdsson, Samuel (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2018-12)
    Pneumococci are commonly carried asymptomatically in the nasopharynx, especially in children. Pneumococci are also one of the major bacterial pathogens causing both severe infections and non-severe infections in both children and adults. The most severe ...
  • Mutia, Thecla Munanie (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2016-09)
    Very little is known on the ecosystem impacts of emissions from geothermal power plants. The emissions, comprising mainly of non- condensable gases (NCGs) i.e. carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, methane and trace elements such as arsenic, ...

    Permalloy Ni80Fe20 at. % (Py) is a well-known ferromagnet utilized in anisotropic magnetoresistance and planar Hall effect sensors as well as magnetic read heads in magnetic memories. These applications rely on the uniaxial magnetic anisotropy in ...
  • Beck, Samantha V. (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2019-01-30)
    Intraspecific variation in egg size and its effects on offspring fitness is well documented in fishes. Yet whether or not differential per propagule maternal investment (egg size) can influence phenotypic diversification is little understood. Arctic ...
  • Edvardsdóttir, Anna Guðrún (2016-12)
    The expansion of the knowledge society became a regional policy issue in Iceland and Scotland in the 1990s. Attention was increasingly paid to the development of the knowledge society in rural areas, especially higher education and research activities. ...
  • Priet-Mahéo, Morgane (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2019-09)
    As the Arctic Circle opens up due to the effects of global warming, the surrounding regions, and in particular the subarctic zone, experience both climatic and societal changes, which makes it imperative to understand the existing ecosystems. Lake ...
