What is Coriolis effect?
Asked by Nitin | 19th Feb, 2017, 07:53: PM
Due to the earth’s rotation, the direction of the winds and ocean currents get changed. As the Earth rotates, the winds and the ocean currents are deflected towards the right in the Northern Hemisphere and towards the left in the Southern Hemisphere. This is known as Coriolis Effect.
