So Here is, All You Need to figure About the Word “Desert”
World’s Largest Deserts
It’s a surprising fact that two of the world’s ten largest deserts just not two rather #1 & #2 are the cold deserts of the polar region i.e. Antarctic & Arctic stretching over the area of 5.5 million & 5.4 million square miles respectively are ranked #1 & #2 in the lists. They can be justifiably the cold hells on the planet.
Area: 14,000,000 sq.km/ nearly 5.5 million sq m Population: The desert was firstly manifested in 1820 following the Russian expedition. Antarctic is covering the whole south pole of the southernmost Antarctica. It represents the southern Hemisphere. Averaging 1.9 km thickness of 98% of the ice regime, Antarctica proves to be the ultimate great cold desert. −89 °C – just to have an idea of what it is!Arctic desert
This time the northern one, the northernmost arctic was explored for the first time in 1937 by the Russia (Soviet that time). Arctic covers the geographical boundaries of 8 Arctic nations including USA, Russia, Sweden, Norway, Canada, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland all being the member of Arctic council. In the crouching heat of July in summers this desert has a temperature below than 10 C. You can understand better the rest.

Non- they include the sub-tropical, cold winter & cool coastal deserts. The answer to this confusion is that these 5 deserts are stretched amid poles over the different continents and are partially inhabited by humans, plants & animals.|
