Desert refers to sandy desert, one third of the earth’s land is desert. Because there is little water, it is generally thought that the desert is desolate and lifeless, which is known as “barren sand”. Compared with other areas, there is not much life in the desert, but if you look carefully, you will find that there are many animals in the desert, especially those that come out at night.
Desert areas are mostly sandy beaches or sand dunes, and rocks under the sand often appear. The soil is thin and there are few plants. Some deserts are salt flats with no vegetation at all. Deserts are generally aeolian landforms.
There are sometimes valuable mineral deposits in the desert, and many oil reserves have been found in modern times. Because there are few residents in the desert, it is easier to develop resources. The desert has a dry climate, but it is a happy home for archaeologists because many human relics and earlier fossils can be found there.
