3. Saga rannsˇkna og ˙tgßfu er snerta jar­vÝsindi og e­lisfrŠ­i ß ═slandi, m.a. rannsˇkna ß silfurbergskrist÷llum.

1. Paleomagnetism, both as a tool for stratigraphic studies and as a means of investigating long-term properties of the geomagnetic field.

2. Geomagnetic surveys (mostly from aircraft) to study the structure, age and tectonics of Iceland and the surrounding shelf.

3. The history of scientific research in Iceland; applications of Iceland spar and other minerals from Iceland.
