Ilya Miller Honors Statistics Professor Sorenson Based on patterns and analysis, weather prediction should be possible at a very precise level. This is because the atmosphere is a physical system that is controlled by the laws of physics. An example of this is the first law of thermo dynamics and the ideal gas law. Mathematical expressions of these laws can provide complex equations that when entered in accordance with current weather conditions such as atmospheric pressure and humidity readings should hypothetically give us exact concrete weather conditions years in advance. This same idea is applied to make tide prognosis for sailors. This theory was first introduced in the early 20 th century, but with minimal computer capabilities, the complex equations could not be solved and accurate weather predicting were not possible. When computers advanced, simplified versions of these complex equations began to predict weather a couple of days in advance. The accuracy was lost when attempting to predict
