Eulerian wind

Eulerian wind

[ȯi′ler·ē·ən ′wind]
(meteorology)
A wind motion only in response to the pressure force; the cyclostrophic wind is a special case of the Eulerian wind, which is limited in its meteorological applicability to those situations in which the Coriolis effect is negligible.

An investigation of C[O.sub.2] flux rates computed from wind speeds relative to water, and Eulerian wind speeds, showed that the two methods give significantly different flux estimates.
