Climate Change in Australia Case Study:
Climate change is an urgent problem which is connected with the alteration of climate in different areas of Earth under the effect of different factors. Climate is changed all over the world and this process is affected by the intensive human activity and other natural factors which are not influenced by the human being.

Ballistics Case Study:
Ballistics is the science – a branch of mechanics, which studies the movement and collision of projectiles, such as bullets, bombs and rockets. Naturally, with the rapid development of technologies, the weapon is developed too and the majority of types of weapon destroy the opponent from the long distance without the direct contact of the killer and the victim.
Ballistics is the science which got its popularity after the invention of gun and powder. The first research on the peculiarities of the direction of the flight of projectiles was conducted in 1546. Due to the inventions and intellectual contribution into physics of such great minds as Galileo and Newton, people got the opportunity to study the direction of flight of cannonballs, bullets and other projectiles.

California Energy Crisis Case Study:
California energy crisis is the serious electricity crisis which occurred in 2000 in California, the USA under the effect of numerous factors. The case is also known as the Western U.S. Energy Crisis, because many regions of the country faced the problem of shortage of electricity and enormous prices on it.

Desertification Case Study:
Desertification is the process of land degradation, reduction of their qualities under the anthropogenic and natural factors. The definition of desertification appeared in 1940 when people began paying attention to the problem of land degradation and started studying the issue deeper.
The term ‘land’ has a special meaning – a bioproductive system consisting of soil, water, plants and other biomass; and also ecological and hydrological processes in this system. Land degradation is the reduction of the intensiveness of these processes under the effect of the human activity and extensive agriculture. Degradation is connected with drying of land, withering of vegetation and reduction of soil cohesion, which increase the risk of rapid wind erosion and dust storms.
Desertification is supposed to be one of the most serious results of climate change, because it is probably impossible to restore the quality of the soil which was affected by the process of degradation (in order to restore 1 cm2 of soil, one requires 70-150 years). Continue reading
