  • Actually, the Sahara is only the world's largest *nonpolar* desert. The largest desert in the world is really Antarctica, at 5,500,00 square miles. A desert is classified as an area having less than 10 inches of precipitation per year, and precipitation includes both rain and snow.
  • Pussy a la mode.
  • The largest (non polar) desert in the world is the Sahara, in north Africa, which spans an area measured at roughly 3.5 million square miles. The United States' contiguous 48 states could easily fit in the desert. It spans more than 3,000 miles across Africa, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea on the north and it spreads all the way down to central Africa, some 1,200 miles south. Regards.

  • A desert is a landscape or region that receives very little precipitation - less than 250 mm per year (about ten inches). Approximately 1/3 of Earth's land surface is a desert. The largest areas on Earth that fit this definition are the polar regions. Antarctica has a surface area of about 14 million square kilometers (5.5 million square miles), making it the largest desert in the world. The largest non-polar desert is the Sahara Desert of northern Africa. The Sahara has a surface area of 9 million square kilometers (3.5 million square miles), and it stands as the largest non-polar desert in the world. http://geology.com/records/largest-desert.shtml
