How Frs. Riccioli and Dechales Argued that Science Shows the Earth to be at Rest – The Coriolis Effect (re-run) — 1 Comment

  1. Back in celestial air navigation days, a Coriolis correction was added to plotted fixes. The correction was a function of groundspeed and latitude applied to the right of course in the northern hemisphere and to the left in the southern hemisphere. For instance, a plane traveling at 350 knots ground speed at 40 degree North Latitude would require a fix correction of 6 nautical miles to the right of course. The correction increases with ground speed and latitude from the equator to the poles.
