Caption: Illustration of the impact of the Coriolis effect on the earth's wind currents. The Coriolis effect is an apparent force, relative to the earth's surface, that causes deflection of moving objects to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere due to the earth's rotation.
