The Sahara Desert is the driest desert in the world. It is also theworld's largest desert. This desert area receives less than oneinch of rainfall annually.
Annual precipitation is between 35 and 45 inches.
Because Antarctica is a polar region -- a polar desert, in fact --there is no precipitation, it has no lakes or rivers and is in factthe driest continent. Average temperatures… in the Antarctic interior get down to -70degrees Celsius during the winter months and -35 degrees Celsius inthe warmer months. The coastal temperatures are much warmer with a range of -15 to -32Celsius in Winter and -5 to +5 Celsius in Summer. The interior of Antarctica is considered the world's driest desertbecause the extreme cold freezes water vapour out of the air. Annual snowfall on the polar plateau is equivalent to less than 5cm of rain. There is some snow on the Antarctic Peninsula, which can receivethe equivalent in snow of around 8" of water a year, while theinterior receives around 2".
Yes. Both arctic and antarctic qualify as desert.
6 to 10 inches
Tropical air is warm and moist due to high sea water evaporation.Polar air is cold and dry due to less evaporation taking place. Anyrain is likely to fall as snow in the polar… regions.
Low precipitation . 6-10 inches per year
it gets 12 inches per year
the average rainfall in the tundra is 6-10 inches in a year.
deserts usually get under 25cm of rain per year
Antarctica's average humidity is about five percent. For acontinent which is the size of USA and Mexico combined, this makesAntarctica a desert. On the northern coasts, there …may be as muchas eight inches of precipitation per year, and elsewhere,precipitation is negligible.
Each desert has its own weather statistics. However, a desert isdefined as a region that receives less than 10 inches (250 mm) ofrain on average per year. Some deserts receive… virtually norainfall.
