Deserts of the world: Gobi
May 19, 2006 - 02:12 PMThe Gobi (meaning "very large and dry" in Mongolian) Desert is a 500,000-square-mile region extending through northern China and southern Mongolia.
In some parts of this desert, the sand dunes are in constant movement, traveling up to 150 feet per year.
The Gobi is the source of some of the most incredible fossil finds in history, including the first dinosaur eggs.
