Owing to Icelands position on the Mid Atlantic Ridge, seismic activity is fairly present on the island and poses a constant threat for its inhabitants. The town of Húsavík is situated on the Húsavík-Flatey Fault (HFF), one of the largest active transform faults in Iceland. Recent research concludes that currently the HFF has the potential for an Mw 6,8 earthquake. Differences in the local geology and geomorphology and a diverse building stock may lead to differences in local earthquake hazards and seismic risks. The ongoing ICEARRAY II project aims at quantifying these differences within the town of Húsavík. The purpose of this thesis is to contribute to this task with special respect to site-specific situations and the present building stock. Besides the surface geology, it brings the geomorphological features and processes found in Húsavík into focus. Special attention is paid to secondary earthquake hazards such as soil liquefaction or landslides. Additionally, a georeferenced building data-base containing information on building age, material and usage has been created. Acquisition, analysis, interpretation, and communication of the data are based on a literature review, an extensive field survey and GIS-applications. The results of the study are presented in maps. In conclusion, the interpretations allow for relative estimations of local variations of primary and secondary earthquake hazard potentials. Areas with an increased potential for primary earthquake hazards can be found especially in the sedimentary units of Húsavík and on tops and along ridges of hills and slopes. Hotspots for secondary earthquake hazards are fully water saturated sedimentary areas (soil liquefaction potential) and the slopes and cliffs along the coast and the mountainous surroundings (landslides). Overlaying the areas of high earthquake hazard potential with the building stock criteria allow for outlining areas with relative differences in seismic risks.
