An operator splitting scheme is introduced for the numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with Coriolis force. Under some mild regularity assumptions on the continuous solution, error estimates and the stability analysis for the velocity and the pressure of the new operator splitting scheme are obtained. Some numerical results are presented to verify the theoretical predictions.
