What causes the Coriolis effect?
The rotation of the Earth is known to be the main cause of the Coriolis effect. Earth rotates counterclockwise around its axis, and for this reason, moving objects or diverted through the area over a long distance, as they move in the opposite direction, and that, even at high speeds.
Rate of rotation of the Earth decreases with increasing latitude during this purpose. When a team is removed above the equator, it will continue to move without too much bending. But if flying a little far from the equator to the plane ride safely and maximum at the poles.
