Mojave

(mōhä`vē), river, c.100 mi (160 km) long, rising in the San Bernardino Mts., S Calif., and flowing generally north to disappear in the Mojave Desert. Due to the porous soil and rapid evaporation, much of its course is underground except during the short wet season.

Mojave

 

a desert in the southwestern United States, in southern California. The desert, which includes Death Valley, has an area of about 30, 000 sq km. The topography alternates between ranges (up to 3, 366 m high) and basins with continental deposits. The climate is sharply continental, with hot summers. The annual precipitation is 45–150 mm. Surface drainage is irregular, and there are a number of small salt lakes. The vegetation consists of succulents (primarily yucca and cacti) and brush. The land is virtually unused. The Joshua Tree National Monument, a preserve of desert vegetation and fauna, is in the southern part of the desert.
