Abstract:
Deserts are arid regions where potential evaporation is very much higher than annual precipitation. These regions can be further subdivided into semiarid, arid, and extremely arid, which together, cover 35% of the earth's land surface. The cold winter period which is typical of the arid regions of the temperate zone is lacking in the subtropical desert zone (see Sect. VII).
