What is the only continent without a desert?

Post by Admin » Tue Sep 08, 2009 5:16 pm

Europe is the only continent on Earth without a desert.

However, when we think of deserts, the first thing that comes in our mind is the Great Sahara Desert of Africa. Although most probably it’s out of your mind, but you should also know that Antarctica is a desert too.

In all these deserts (e.g. Sahara and Antarctica), annual rainfall is less that 250 mm (millimetres).
