Travel Sahara Desert, North Africa - Tour of Life in The Sahara Desert

131 ratings | 79006 views
Take a tour of Life in the Sahara Desert in Morocco -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. Almost as large as Europe, it is the world's largest desert except for Antarctica. Although the Sahara is mostly inhospitable, desert plants and animals have managed to survive here. Among those animals are humans, roughly 4 million of them, who dwell in the sands. Many of these people have adopted special ways of living to survive the desert climate. A good number are nomadic and follow the scarce resources of food and water. Some permanent civilizations, notably the Egyptians, have managed to make the Sahara their home. For many, there is a rugged beauty to the desert that must be recognized and respected. For example, the awesome Saharan dunes can look like waves in an ocean of sand.

1-4: The Sahara Desert is dry because it has a water deficit (more water leaves than arrives). The Sahara Desert is surrounded by water (Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea) but the water does not hydrate the landmass. Water is kept out of Sahara by mountains along oceanfront. The minuscule amount of moisture eventually exits the Sahara Desert to the south and east as it is blown on the wind. Because of the preceding; Sahara is expanding to the south as evidenced by the now dry Lake Chad.

4-4: The concept of a canal system into the Sahara from the Mediterranean Sea is not new. A hundred years ago the French spent many francs researching this idea. For some dramatized discussion; read: Invasion of the Sea (French: L'Invasion de la mer) by: Jules Gabriel Verne’s book. To accomplish this will: Locally; bring water to many and along with water comes hope; Globally; allowing the water into Sahara will reduce the sea level a bit and a re-hydrated Sahara will reduce global warming.
