There are many arid climates on the earth. An arid climate receives very little rainfall. The large deserts of the world like the Sahara, Gobi and Great Sandy deserts are all arid climates. Antarctica is another arid climate, it is the worlds largest cold desert. In the US, Death Valley, California receives less than two inches of rain a year.
