    Geostrophy---> what is it?

    Can someone leave some hints about this subject?...

    What is in fact geostrophy, and what are the implications of a geostrophic flow at the core-mantle boundary?

    Are there any articles available?

    however it may seem that the authors overlooked some forces like the precession of the equinoxes.
