According to the analysis presented here, equator and the parallel of 64°N have mathematically identical outcomes. Even though the rotation provides much more angular velocity at equator, special things appear at 64°N as well.
Some would just show some reflex and start talking about something else, but there is a reason for this.
The division lines between mantle convection rolls have a long term guiding effect for the tectonic drift, leading to these results.

I have a BS degree in geology, BA in anthropology, graduated in Chinese language and as a certified tourist guide. I provide this website about my contribution to answer the greatest question remaining about our Earth. I have analyzed the convection rolls within the Earth's mantle and how they affect the surface. This makes it possible to provide many interesting examples about geology found on my blog.
