The book "Principles of Fluid Mechanics" has been splitted into two volumes: Volume I - Fluid Mechanics, and Volume II - Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. The Appendices, Bibliography and Index are published in a separate web page. The first chapter of the second volume is entitled Apparent forces due to the earth's rotation starts after page 500, in order to simplify the numbering of the pages in the first volume.
