Descriptor English: Coriolis Force
Descriptor Spanish: Fuerza Coriolis
Descriptor fuerza de Coriolis
Entry term(s) aceleración de Coriolis
efecto Coriolis
estimulación de Coriolis
Scope note: Desviación aparente (aceleración de Coriolis) de un cuerpo en movimiento respecto de la tierra, como lo percibiría un observador en la tierra, atribuida a una fuerza ficticia (fuerza de Coriolis) pero realmente debida a la rotación terrestre. En términos médicos, se refiere a los efectos fisiológicos (nauseas, vértigo, mareos, etc.) que experimenta un individuo cuando sufre un movimiento radical en un sistema rotatorio, como sería una estación espacial rotatoria.

Scope note: The apparent deflection (Coriolis acceleration) of a body in motion with respect to the earth, as seen by an observer on the earth, attributed to a fictitious force (Coriolis force) but actually caused by the rotation of the earth. In a medical context it refers to the physiological effects (nausea, vertigo, dizziness, etc.) felt by a person moving radially in a rotating system, as a rotating space station. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed & McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
