How Sahara Desert helps the Amazon Rainforest stay green [Video]

Image
English: Sahara desert from space. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)The Sahara Desert is known for its dry and arid regions and the sand dunes that can rise up to almost 600 feet! While this largest hot desert (yes, we have cold deserts too... guess where) can easily be made out from satellites in space, there is more that the satellites have been able to visualise than the dryness of the land.

Watch this short video from NASA below and know how the dryness of Sahara actually helps the Amazon Rainforest stay green.

Balance!
