In the northern hemisphere, an object in motion will get deflected to the
RIGHT.
In the southern hemisphere, an object in motion will get deflected to the LEFT.
The “left” and “right” orientation can get confusing. You need to imagine
yourself standing at the base of one of those dashed arrows in the diagram,
looking toward the point of the arrow. Then your “left” or your “right” will make
sense.
Another way to look at this is to say that:
Objects moving towards the poles are deflected to the EAST (in both
hemispheres)
Objects moving towards the equator are deflected to the WEST (in both
hemispheres)

## Document Summary

Such convection cells on a non-rotating earth would produce northerly wind in northern hemisphere, and southerly wind in southern hemisphere. In the northern hemisphere, an object in motion will get deflected to the. In the southern hemisphere, an object in motion will get deflected to the left. The left and right orientation can get confusing. You need to imagine yourself standing at the base of one of those dashed arrows in the diagram, looking toward the point of the arrow. Then your left or your right will make sense. Another way to look at this is to say that: Objects moving towards the poles are deflected to the east (in both hemispheres) Objects moving towards the equator are deflected to the west (in both hemispheres) The winds blowing from 30 to the equator are deflected to the west and form the trade winds. The winds blowing the 30 to 60 are deflected to the east and form the westerlies.
