Soil condition

Deserts are defined as being very dry. Not all of them are hot, or sandy. The antarctic continent is a dry, polar desert. At the south pole, it doesn't snow very often, though, blowing snow can accumulate up to 20 cm. Even though moisture levels are really low, deserts are prone to flash flooding when they receive rain. This is what causes all of the interesting and colorful rock formations. The lack of soil moisture keeps minerals from leaching out of the soils, and can even create cement like horizons near the soil surface.
