... dicit enim, ex somno longo resurrectus:
Iconoclastes scripsit de aqua et vi quæ Coriolis dicitur. Quæ scripta sunt, falsa etiam sunt: vis enim Coriolis minima est, nec potest nisi magnas tempestates, quæ permulta milia passuum tendunt, vertere.
Lego tamen in Vicipaediae versione Anglophona:
The horizontal deflection effect is greater near the poles and smallest at the equator, since the rate of change in the diameter of the circles of latitude when travelling north or south, increases the closer the object is to the poles. Rather than flowing directly from areas of high pressure to low pressure, as they would in a non-rotating system, winds and currents tend to flow to the right of this direction north of the equator and to the left of this direction south of it. This effect is responsible for the rotation of large cyclones (see Coriolis effects in meteorology).
