THE MIGHTY SAHARA لصحراء الكبرى DESERT

    Newer Older

    Seen from 10.621 m high, somewhere above Mauritania - can you feel the hot?...

    This is the World's largest hot desert at over 9,400,000 square kilometres (3,600,000 sq mi); covers most of Northern Africa - large parts of Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Western Sahara, Sudan and Tunisia. It is one of three distinct physiographic provinces of the African massive physiographic division. The desert landforms of the Sahara are shaped by wind or by occasional rains and include sand dunes and dune fields or sand seas (erg), stone plateaus (hamada), gravel plains (reg), dry valleys, and salt flats (shatt or chott). Unusual landforms include the Richat Structure in Mauritania. Several deeply dissected mountains and mountain ranges, many volcanic, rise from the desert, including the Aïr Mountains, Ahaggar Mountains, Saharan Atlas, Tibesti Mountains, Adrar des Iforas, and the Red Sea hills - thanks mr. wiki

      é fantástica esta vista por cima do Sahara. gostaria de ver um bom livro de fotografia a´rea do Sahara. em Março passei por cima, também a uns 10 mil metros, tipo da costa da Argélia para baixo, e fiquei fascinado com o que vi.
