Where Is the Arabian Desert Located?

The Arabian Desert is a 900,000 square mile region in the Arabian Peninsula, situated between the Syrian Desert and the Arabian Sea. The Arabian Desert is found on the continent of Asia and encompasses several countries, including Yemen, Iraq, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.

The Arabian Desert is a rich source of oil and gas, but it lacks prevalent wildlife due to the extreme conditions and temperatures. The climate is classified as subtropical, and temperatures often exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Arabs are the primary population in the area, and Arabic the most common language, but there are also various indigenous tribes as well.
