How much further can weather forecasting models go before the limits of Chaos Theory set in?

1. The role of chaos theory in weather forecasting Chaos theory is a branch of mathematics that deals with complex systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, making their long-term prediction difficult. Weather is one such system that exhibits chaotic behavior due to its inherent complexity and sensitivity to initial conditions. Weather patterns are

Unraveling the Chaotic Nature of Continental Drift in Earth Science

The theory of continental drift, proposed by Alfred Wegener in 1912, suggests that the Earth’s continents were once united in a single supercontinent called Pangaea, which then broke apart and drifted to their present positions. The theory has since been supported by a wealth of geological evidence, including the matching of rock types and fossils
