  • Karlsdottir, Marta (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2021-06)
    Geothermal energy utilization contributes to less than 0.5% of the world’s electricity demand and is not well represented in energy policies and environmental studies of energy systems. Research on geothermal potential and environmental impacts shows ...
  • Jonsdottir, Jona Ingibjorg (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Nursing, 2021-06)
    Markmið: Markmið doktorsrannsóknarinnar var að lýsa stöðu þekkingar á meðferðarrannsóknum eftir greiningu og meðferð krabbameins sem ætlað er að draga úr kynlífsvanda og efla nánd hjá pörum. Ennfremur var markmiðið að þróa og meta árangur nýrrar ...
  • Segler, Anna-Lena Johanna (2021-09)
    To gain information about the function of nucleic acids, their structure and dynamics need to be investigated. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR)- and fluorescence spectroscopies are highly sensitive and valuable techniques to study nucleic acids. ...
  • Kozin, Valerii (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021-08-30)
    The physics of light-matter interactions is a rapidly developing research area at the junction between condensed matter physics and quantum optics. Depending on the strength of the light-matter interaction the systems behave very differently. In the ...
  • Emami, Nargessadat (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2021-08-27)
    Buildings are the key components of urban areas and society as a complex system. Traditionally, the emissions embodied in construction materials have not been considered important, in comparison with impacts from the energy use when it comes to mitigating ...
  • Bersha, Kusse Sukuta (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, 2021-06-25)
    Determining the atomic structure of nanoclusters is a challenging task and a critical one for understanding their chemical and physical properties. To fully understand the properties of a nanocluster, it is necessary to know the positions of the atoms ...
  • Westcoat, Eirik (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of Icelandic and Comparative Cultural Studies, 2021-08)
    This work investigates the Icelandic folktale figure known as the kraftaskáld (power poet, hereafter anglicized as kraftaskald). Prominent in Icelandic folklore of the Post-Reformation period of the sixteenth through early twentieth centuries, these ...
  • Basran, Charla (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2021-09)
    As industries expand in sub-Arctic and Arctic waters there are increased conflicts between these industries and cetaceans. The aim of this work was to investigate the issue of cetacean bycatch/entanglement in Iceland, with a particular focus on the ...
  • Burger, Jan David (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021)
    In the ΛCDM concordance model cold and collision-less dark matter (CDM) accounts for about four fifths of the Universe’s total matter content, while visible baryonic matter makes up the final fifth. The ΛCDM model successfully describes how large ...
  • Salenius, Fredrik Richard (University of Iceland, School of Social Science, Faculty of Économics, 2021-06)
    This thesis consists of three chapters on the economics of international fisheries management. The first chapter explores the economic and biological effects of exploiter and species interactions in a multinational and multispecies fishery. The ...
  • Milewska, Adrianna (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2021-08)
    Identification of primary cells, such as mesenchymal stromal cells, at the molecular level is vital for better understanding of their differentiation pathways. Surface-enhanced Raman scattering has a potential to become a non-invasive screening method ...
  • Olafsdottir, Steinunn A (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2021-06)
    Aims: The aims of this thesis were: (1) to describe functioning and contextual factors of community-dwelling stroke survivors 1-2 years after their first stroke, based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) ...
  • Vilhjálmur, Ásgeirsson (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021-06)
    Methods for identifying the mechanism and estimating the rate of chemical reactions are presented and evaluated for a wide range of systems, using both classical and quantum mechanical description of the atomic nuclei. In the classical case, the minimum ...
  • Emilsson Peskova, Renata (University of Iceland, School of Education, Faculty of Education and Pedagogy, 2021-08)
    Á undanförnum áratugum hefur innflytjendum á Íslandi fjölgað jafnt og þétt. Um leið hefur samsetning nemendahópa í skólum tekið breytingum og í dag eru töluð um eitt hundrað tungumál í grunnskólum landsins. Niðurstöður samræmdra prófa og útkoma úr ...
  • Memon, Ahmed Shiraz (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2021-06)
    Distributed data and compute infrastructures aim to provide access to their data or compute services across disciplinary and geographical borders to their users for scientific research. The services are highly collaborative in nature yet independent ...
  • Amirfallah, Arsalan (University of Iceland, School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, 2021-06-15)
    Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women worldwide. It is also a highly heterogeneous disease that is characterized by an array of genetic rearrangements, including copy number alterations (CNA), translocations, inversions, ...
  • Bohr, Sebastian (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Physical Sciences, 2021-07)
    The nature of dark matter (DM) as a particle is still an unresolved mystery in Physics. Therefore, a vast amount of competing particle models have been proposed. A promising category among these models are those that include relevant collisional damping ...
  • von Leesen, Gotje (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, 2021-06)
    Increasing water temperatures are predicted worldwide, with high amplitudes in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions exceeding predictions for other regions. An understanding how Atlantic cod (<i>Gadus morhua<i>) reacted to changing environmental conditions ...
  • Tryggvason, Heimir (University of Iceland, School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, 2021-06-15)
