dc.description.abstractDue to the vanishing Coriolis parameter in the equatorial region, it is possible for a vortex of given pressure distribution to rotate in either direction. On the other hand, a vortex originating on one side of the equator with a direction of rotation dictated by the sign of the Coriolis parameter, if displaced to the other side of the equator, may maintain its original direction of rotation for a period of time as long as it is not displaced too far away from the equator.en_US
