Mojave Desert

Mojave Desert Introduction

The Mojave desert is a large desert of the USA that extends from California up to Arizona. The desert gets its name from the Mohave tribe – a native American tribe of this region. The boundaries of this desert are defined by the presence of the indigenous Joshua or Yucca trees.

Geography

The topographical boundaries of Mojave consist of the Tehachapi, San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountain ranges. They are lined by the Garlock and the San Andreas faults in California. To its north lies the Great Basin shrub steppe and to the east and south lies the Sonoran desert. The numerous mountain ranges create valleys, salt pans, endorheic basins and saline lakes. Notable aircraft or airplane boneyard is Mojave Air & Space Port which is loacate at Mojave, California.

Climate

The annual precipitation in Mojave is just about 13 in. It is home to the Death valley where the average summer temperature is 49°C. The desert had two distinct seasons –Winter and Summer. The temperatures in winter dip to about -7°C. Summer brings in thunderstorms owing to the North American monsoon. Wind and elevation are the other climatic factors significant to the Mojave. It is also known for its mesas, canyons and flat strata, a geographical mix not found elsewhere on the earth.
