Then we propose equations for the Context Scientists frequently describe temporal components of annual change percentage. change among land categories by reporting the single Results The literature shows three common misun- land use dynamic degree and the comprehensive land derstandings. First, some authors add percentages of use dynamic degree (CLUDD). The original intention of categories without accounting for the sizes of the CLUDD was to compute the annual change percentage, categories. Second, other authors compute either which is the size of annual change expressed as a double or half of the annual change percentage. Third, percentage of the size of the spatial extent. However, the many authors interpret CLUDD as if CLUDD were the literature’s mathematical descriptions of CLUDD have annual change percentage when they use
