The definition of a desert is a place that gets less than 10 inches of rain a year. Most deserts get between 3 and 10 inches of rain a year. If you live in a rainforest, you don’t live in a desert. The rainforests of the world actually do get more than 10 inches of rain a year.

A desert is defined as a place that receives less than 10 inches of rain per year. The Sahara and the Atacama Desert top the list when it comes to the places in the world that receive the least amount of rainfall annually.

According to the World Meteorological Organization, a desert is defined as a region of the earth with an average rainfall of less than 250 mm per year. If you’re wondering how little rainfall a place needs to have to be classified as a desert, it’s a lot less than you’re probably thinking.

According to the USGS, any place that receives less than 10 inches of rainfall per year is considered a desert. Places that receive between 10 and 14 inches of rainfall per year are considered semi-arid. Any place that receives more than 14 inches per year is considered non-arid.

A desert is a landscape or region that receives an extremely low amount of precipitation, less than 250 mm per year. Deserts can be defined as areas that receive an average annual precipitation of less than 250 mm, although some deserts can receive precipitation during some parts of the year.
