The largest hot and dry desert in the world is the Sahara Desert in Northern Africa. The Sahara is a sandy desert with giant sand dunes. It covers over 3 million square miles of Africa. Other major deserts include the Arabian Desert in the Middle East, the Gobi Desert in Northern China and Mongolia, and the Kalahari Desert in Africa.

    Although the word “desert” may bring to mind a sea of shifting sand, dunes cover only about 10 percent of the world’s deserts. Some deserts are mountainous. Others are dry expanses of rock, sand, or salt flats. Kinds of Deserts The world’s deserts can be divided into five types—subtropical, coastal, rain shadow, interior, and polar. When people think of deserts, they usually think of sand, the tiny particles of rocks and minerals that also occur on beaches. In fact, only about 20 percent of the world’s deserts are covered in sand. Most deserts are mainly made up of rocks or gravel, while others are icy. Deserts cover more than one-quarter of Earth’s land surface.
