I am working on establishing C and P factors for all my LULC types. For water, ice, and urban areas (essentially not applicable), I have seen some literature which categorizes these as 1, and some as 0, to indicate that they don’t have a value. Based on my limited understanding of the model, choosing either 0 or 1 for these LULC types could have a significant impact on my results. What have other users of the SDR model used for these LULC types to indicate their lack of relevance (0 or 1)?
Any insight is appreciated! Thanks in advance.
