Geography: deserts, part 1: world’s two largest

Self-tutoring about deserts: the tutor mentions Earth’s two largest ones.

As I mention in my post from October 1, a desert is either 1) a place that releases more moisture than it receives, or 2) a place with less than 10 inches of rain. The point is that a desert is dry, but not necessarily anything else.

The Antarctic and the Arctic deserts are the two world’s largest, with the Antarctic bigger by a sliver. The third largest is the Sahara, around 64% the size of the Antarctic.
