Destination and Climate Introduction
As you can see on the map, the deserts of the world are placed on the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn, where moisture cannot reach. But they are not simply hot and dry as other people might think. As you explore through all these places, you will find that the deserts are so different from each other, having their own characteristics and climate due to their geographical position. 'Where is the largest desert?' 'Where is the driest desert?' 'Are all deserts dry and poorly-vegetated?' All these questions will be answered as you continue to explore through the different deserts of the world.
