Lesson: What Causes Air Movement
The Coriolis Force is the force created by the rotation of the earth. We as humans can not feel this force, but large masses of air or bodies of water a effected.
In the Northern Hemisphere air is deflected to the right at a curved path, rather than in a straight line. Same goes for the Southern Hemisphere, with the exception that the air is defected to the left.
