Short description: AFFOREST is a project under the European research programme - 5th Framework Programme. The focus of AFFOREST is on building knowledge and capacity to provide support for decisions regarding afforestation in respect to changes in C, N and H2O pools and fluxes. To support these decisions the project envisages to develop a spatial Decision Support System (SDSS), useful for scenario analysis and environmental impact assessment. In the work with these tasks this literature review was developed in order to provide information on the available literature and research on deposition (chapter 1), precipitation surplus (chapter 2), nitrate leaching from soils (chapter 3), C sequestration in biomass and soils (chapter 4) as well as material on spatial Decision Support Systems and their use in environmental planning (chapter 5).
