Sahara Desert Map

The Sahara desert is the largest hot desert and the third largest desert in the world after Antarctica and the Arctic. Its area of 9,200,000 square kilometres is comparable to the area of China or the United States. The name ‘Sahara’ is derived from a dialectal Arabic word for “desert”, ṣaḥra.

Sahara Desert temperature

The Sahara Desert is one of the driest and hottest regions of the world, with a mean temperature sometimes over 30 °C (86 °F) and the average high temperatures in summer are over 40 °C (104 °F) for months at a time, and can even soar to 47 °C (117 °F). The Sahara Desert has grown significantly over the past century, and climate change is largely to blame, according to a new study.
