Decrease of the Atmospheric Co-Rotation with Height
Membrado, M.; Pacheco, A. F.
European Journal of Physics, v31 n5 p1013-1020 Sep 2010
Considering our atmosphere as a steady viscous gaseous envelope that co-rotates with the Earth, we obtain a solution for the form in which this induced rotational effect decreases as a function of the distances to the centre of the Earth and to the rotation axis. (Contains 1 figure.)
