Mauritania Weather Stats

Climate summary:

Mauritania is located mostly in the Sahara desert save for a small piece of tropical savanna and Sahel around the River Senegal in approximately the southern most quarter of its territory. Because of extended, severe drought, the desert has been expanding since the mid-1960s. To the west, between the ocean and the eastern plateaus , are alternating areas of clayey plains and sand dunes, some of which are shifted from place to place by high winds.
