# Coriolis Resources

- Stull: Stull on the Coriolis Force (good diagrams)
- Anders Persson has written many papers on the Coriolis force and its interpretation. Here are two: How do we understand the Coriolis Force?
- Persson again: The Coriolis Effect: Four centuries of conflict between common sense and mathematics
- Lisa Simpson is wrong: Lisa misunderstands the Coriolis effect
- An experiment you could try at home (although it's hard to do it right): Shapiro's 1962 bathtub experiment
- How insects use their antennae to sense and exploit Coriolis forces: Antennal mechasensors mediate flight control in moths

# Gravity Wave Videos and Resources

- YouTube video of gravity waves (remember, k > 0 and m > 0)
- Idealized internal gravity waves in a Boussinesq fluid (from Dale Durran's website)
- Gravity waves generated by a simulated squall line (from Dale Durran's website)
- Thomas Birner's webpage about Sudden Stratospheric Warmings (including PV animations)
