Idea

Too To have a an Azimuth springboard to this increasingly growing field, which currently encompasses:

just to mention the major research subfields.

Details and environmental scientific usage and occurrance

Capsule History

Many of these areas have arised from questions in dynamics of earth and its atmosphere like three-body collisions which is what got Poincare’ to spin-off topology, and later physics researcher n-body simulations. Lorenz who found strange attractors in the weather models he used.

towards instability with laminar flow:

Kelvin and Helmholtz with their instability theory as an precursor and predictor of turbulence. Mandelbrot who finds fractals in many places in both natural and anthropogenic phenomena.You know you are dealing with a nonlinear system if the output is not proportional to the input data.

Chaos

Applied or originated in some research fields likeclimate modeling,

Fractals and multifractals

Complex adaptive systems

Pattern Formation

Solitons

Used in modeling Rossby solitons and they might also be important in rogue wavess like the Draupner wave
