Coriolis acceleration

An acceleration of a moving object, such as an airplane, to the right or left caused by Coriolis force. Coriolis force is apparent force experienced by a body moving relative to the rotating earth. The wind blowing from the poles toward the equator turns to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere because of this Coriolis force, or Coriolis effect. Coriolis acceleration is experienced in all motion parallel to local surfaces, except that on the equator.
Airflow moving from high pressure to low pressure in the Northern Hemisphere is deflected to the right due to Coriolis or earth’s rotation
