Abstract
    In 1835, Gustave Coriolis derived the expression of a force acting in rotating systems, now known as the Coriolis force. His work was inspired by rotating devices such as waterwheels. However, the onerotating device that has always been with us is the Earth itself. Indeed, the earliest studies on how moving objects behave in a rotating system were directed to the Earth's diurnal rotation. Here we trace the history of these studies, which started two centuries before Coriolis.
