Does the third law allow for methods to be deductive consequences of used theories?

Newtonian Mechanics are considered to be a used theory in physical sciences, yet the backbone of meteorology is inherently Newtonian. While Newtonian theory is also useful for practices such as bridge building, such a field is a constructive field, while meteorology is a science that is growing and not ossified. Is it possible then, that used theories can be applied in method construction, or does this indicate that a theory can be used in one field or discipline, while being accepted in another?

In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Nicholas Overgaard, Gregory Rupik, Paul Patton, Jacob MacKinnon and Markus Alliksaar in 2017. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. At the moment, the question has no accepted answer in Scientonomy.
