planetary vorticity effect

The effect of the variation of the earth's vorticity with latitude in altering the relative vorticity of a flow with a meridional component.

A fluid with a free surface in a rotating cylinder will exhibit a corresponding effect, owing to the shrinking or stretching of radially displaced columns.
See beta plane, vorticity equation.
