describe the Coriolis effect in the large scale movement of air in the atmosphere?
I give you 10 points if you give me, or about exactly what I need!
The Coriolis effect is caused by differences in ground speed as the Earth rotates. As the Earth rotates on its axis, points along the Ecuador moves relatively faster, since they are farther from the axis, all other points, both North and South of Ecuador are moving more slowly. The air friction is closest to the Earth's surface along with the land, which means that the air near the line of Ecuador is also moving faster than the air in elsewhere. The difference in speed creates a tendency for the atmosphere and the ocean (liquid) to the left circle to the North and South of Ecuador to the right of Ecuador.
BEX AIR 06 / Some scale plane in action. Great !!!
