SLAvONIC addresses the following objectives:

  1. To quantify the effect of acidity/N availability changes on the amount of C and N lost from the ecosystem via organic (DOC, DON - dissolved organic nitrogen) and inorganic (NO3, CO2) pathways, in two major forest types.
  2. To measure how acidity/N availability affects a range of key internal N and C transformations; decomposition of SOM, net nitrogen mineralisation and nitrification.
  3. To use the results to support the development of a model of C and N cycling which, unlike most existing models, fully incorporates the effects of changing acidity, and this model will be used to predict future change in ecosystem carbon and nitrogen balances.
