pattern of deflection taken by objects not firmly connected to the ground as they travel long distances around Earth. the Coriolis Effect makes things (like planes or currents of air) traveling long distances around the Earth appear to move at a curve as opposed to a straight line..... The effect of the Coriolis force is an apparent deflection of the path of an object that moves within a rotating coordinate system. The object does not actually deviate from its path, but it appears to do so because of the motion of the coordinate system.

The Coriolis effect describes the pattern of deflection taken by objects not firmly connected to the ground as they
travel long distances around Earth. The Coriolis effect is responsible for many large-scale weather patterns.....
The key to the Coriolis effect lies in Earth's rotation. Specifically, Earth rotates faster at the Equator than it does at the poles. Earth
is wider at the Equator, so to make a rotation in one 24-hour period, equatorial regions race nearly 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) per hour.
Near the poles, Earth rotates at a sluggish 0.00008 kilometers (0.00005 miles) per hour.
Let's pretend you're standing at the Equator and you want to throw a ball to your friend in the middle of North America. If you throw the ball in a straight line, it will appear to land to the right of your friend because he's moving slower and has not caught up.

The Coriolis Effect is named after French mathematician and physicist Gaspard-Gustave de Coriolis (1792-1843) who studied the transfer of energy in rotating systems like waterwheels. As the Earth rotates, circulating air is deflected. Instead of circulating in a straight pattern, the air deflects toward the right in the Northern Hemisphere and toward the left in the Southern Hemisphere, resulting in curved paths. .... This deflection is called the Coriolis effect. ThIs Effect makes currents of air traveling long distances around Earth appear to move at a curve as opposed to a straight line.

The coriolis effect is the apparent acceleration of a moving body on or near the Earth as a result of of the earth's rotation. The coriolis effect is an important determinant of wind direction on a global scale.In the Northern Hemisphere, air moving toward the Equator is deflected to the west, or to the right of its direction of motion. .... Conversely, air moving from the Equator toward the North Pole is deflected to the east. These directions are reversed in the Southern Hemisphere, where the Earth's rotation deflects air to the left. Winds blowing from the south toward the Equator are deflected to the west, and winds traveling from the Equator toward the South Pole are deflected to the east.

it is an effect that is responsible for weather change like cyclones.this effect is mainly due to earths rotation .as the earth rotates the air around it also deflects rather than remain in straight path. so the air is either deflected towards right or towards left which makes things like air currents that are travelling to long distances to move in a curve rather than in a straight line ..... it occurs because earth rotates faster at equator than at poles .velocity has also a role in this effect as it is nearly zero at poles and maximum at equator .it helps to study atmospheric dynamics

The Coriolis effect is the apparent circular motion of long travelling objects/paricles/fluids due to the continuous
change in the frame of reference.
It was named after after french mathematician and physicist G. Coriolis..... For example :- If we sit opposite on a marry go round and pass a ball to either one, then the ball will appear to be following an angular/curved path, but this will be observed by only people sitting on the marry-go-round. The person sitting outside that frame will see the ball to follow the regular or linear/parabolic path. This is a simple example of Coriolis effect.
Due to the rotation of the Earth (just like the marry-go-round) the wind currents or circulation Difflects to the right in the northern hemisphere and to the left in the southern hemisphere (From equator).

The Coriolis effect is an "apparent" effect, an illusion produced by a rotating frame of reference. This type of effect
is also known as a fictitious force or an inertial force. The Coriolis effect occurs when an object moving along a straight path is viewed from a
non-fixed frame of reference. Typically, this moving frame of reference is the Earth, which rotates at a fixed speed. When we view an object in
the air that is following a straight path, the object will appear to lose its course because of the rotation of the Earth.
This effect was first explained by Gaspard-Gustave de Coriolis, a French scientist and mathematician, in 1835. Coriolis had been studying kinetic energy in waterwheels when he realized that the forces he was observing also played a role in larger systems..... The main cause of the Coriolis effect is the Earth's rotation. As the Earth spins in a counter-clockwise direction on its axis, anything flying or flowing over a long distance above its surface is deflected. This occurs because as something moves freely above the Earth's surface, the Earth moves east under the object at a faster speed. As latitude increases and the speed of the Earth's rotation decreases, the Coriolis effect increases. A pilot flying along the equator itself would be able to continue flying along the equator without any apparent deflection. A little to the north or south of the equator, however, and the pilot would be deflected. As the pilot's plane nears the poles, it would experience the most deflection possible.
The most important impacts of the Coriolis effect in terms of geography are the deflection of winds and currents in the ocean. There is also a significant effect on man-made items such as planes and missiles.

It is an effect whereby a mass moving in a rotating system experiences a force (the Coriolis force) acting perpendicular
to the direction of motion and to the axis of rotation. On the earth, the effect tends to deflect moving objects to the right in the northern
hemisphere and to the left in the southern and is important in the formation of cyclonic weather .Coriolis effect is greatest on the pole. The
Coriolis effect is absent at the equator.Coriolis force- prevents a direct simple flow from the equator to the poles.....
This is also known as 'Ferrel law'.
Cause- Earth rotation is the main reason for the Coriolis effect.
3 things affect Coriolis effect :-
1- Atmospheric rotation patterns.
2-Oceanic circulation patterns.
"The Coriolis effect, which is a result of earth's rotation, causes moving particles such as air to be deflected to the right in the northern hemisphere and to the left in the southern hemisphere".

Coriolis effect (force)- Earth k rotation se large objects pr lagne wale force ko coriolis effect kehte hai.
Planet earth apni axis pr west to east direction me rotate kerti hai, jis se equator pr coriolis force ka value 0 hota hai and pole pr iska value maximum hota hai..... Due to the earth rotation Northern hemisphere me poles se equater ki or flow kerne wali winds(Northeast stream) equater pr left side me move ker jati hai or equater se poles ki or flow kerne wali winds right side me temperate region me move kr jati hai.
In the southern hemisphere me poles se equater ki or flow kerne wali winds (Southeast stream) equater pr right side me move kr jati hai ,And equater se poles ki or flow kerne wali winds temperate region me move kr jati hai.

@ Causes of the Coriolis Effect @
# The main cause of the Coriolis effect is the earth's rotation,
# As latitude increases and the speed of the earth's rotation decreases, Coriolis effect increases.
@ Impacts of the Coriolis Effect @
# The water itself is simply moving too fast down the drain to allow for the Coriolis effect to have any significant impact.
# The development of weather patterns, such as cyclones and trade winds, are examples of the impact of the Coriolis effect.
# The weather impacting fast-moving objects, such as airplanes and rockets, is influenced by the Coriolis effect.
