Desert Location

Most deserts lie along the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, imaginary lines that lie north and south of the equator. Deserts cover about one fifth of all the land in the world. Some major deserts can be found in North America, such as Sonora, Chihuahua, Mojave and the Great Basin. South America has deserts in Patagonia and Argentina. Deserts cover areas in Africa. In fact, the Sahara, which is the largest desert in the world covers about 3.5 million square miles.

Desert Climate
The desert is the hottest biome on Earth. There is little protection to keep them from heating up in the sun and cooling when the sun disappears in the night. Though there is little rain in a desert, when it rains it pours. Rainfall is less than 50 centimeters a year. The desert has two seasons they are summer and winter. Many mean annual temperatures range from 20-25 degrees Celsius. The maximum temperature is 43.5-49 degrees Celsius. The minimum temperatures sometimes drop to -18 degrees Celsius. The Sahara desert is between 1,287 square kilometers to 1,931 square kilometers and the Negev desert is about 12,870 square kilometers. The Sahara desert is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. The Negev desert is bordered only by the Mediterranean Sea.
