A desert is a hot area of land that gets very little rain—not more than 200 mm a year. Temperatures during the daytime can get as high as 55° C. At night, deserts cool down , sometimes even below 0° C.
Deserts cover about 20% of the world’s land. The biggest is the Sahara desert, which is about the same size as Europe.
