Question

in general, the near-surface water is fresher on the left (west) side of the profiles in Figure 5. One factor that

contributes to this freshening is the fact that more rivers and streams enter from the west side of the Bay than from the east side. Another factor is the Coriolis Effect. As noted in Item 12, the Coriolis Effect causes water currents to turn rightward, so fresh water flowing southward down the Bay curves rightward toward the _____ side of the Bay.
