Recently Gyða Þórhallsdóttir, PhD student in tourism research at the University of Iceland, and her supervisor Rögnvaldur Ólafsson, published their paper: A method to analyse seasonality in the distribution of tourists in Iceland.

The paper describes a method that analyses seasonality in the number of tourists at nature destinations in South and West Iceland, where the data is obtained from vehicle counters.

Part of Gyða's research was conducted at the ITRC in 2015 and 2016.
