SLAvONIC project aims to fill the gap in understanding of the combined effects of S and N deposition on altering C and N cycling in forest soils. In particular, the project examines whether there is a shift in the relative balance of ecosystem N and C accumulation, versus ecosystem losses in either (dissolved) organic or (dissolved or gaseous) inorganic forms. A set of replicated acidity/N availability manipulation experiments in broad leave (beech forest) and conifer (spruce forest) sites are undertaken in an area of formerly high S/N deposition (northern part of the Czech Republic) over the time period of 4 years.
