A desert is a barren area of land where little precipitation occurs and consequently living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life. The lack of vegetation exposes the unprotected surface of the ground to the processes of denudation. About one third of the land surface of the world is arid or semi-arid. This includes much of the polar regions where little precipitation occurs and which are sometimes called "cold deserts". #Glogster #Desert

Desert soils form in areas where the demand for water by the atmosphere (evaporation) and plants (transpiration) is much greater than precipitation. Deserts cover 20 to 33% of the Earth’s land surface, and can be found in the tropics, at the poles, and in between.

Pan American highway goes through the Atacama desert, the driest place on earth where parts of the desert go for more than a century without recordable precipitation. The highway is a network of roads nearly 48,000 kilometres (29,800 miles--the Southern part begins in Laredo, Texas and runs to Argentina.
