This coastal sea fog is known as cacimbo in Angola, nieselregen in Namibia, and Mal-mokkie in Namaqualand. The area around Swakopmund is the foggiest part of the Namib desert and has more than 100 fog days per year. The fog reaches more than 100 kilometres inland. Rainfall totals in the central Namib average around 10–20 millimetres a year, but water precipitated from fog is in some cases greater. At Swakopmund, on the coast, the average annual precipitation by fog is 34 millimetres, nearly two times the average annual rainfall of 18 millimetres.
An assessment of the spottiness of rainfall in an extremely arid part of Israel, the southern Arava, part of the Jordan rift valley, concluded that localized, high-intensity storms provided between a half and two-thirds of the total rainfall in the region. The proportion of the region receiving rainfall from one of these storms, which typically last just a few minutes, may be as low as 20%. Another study of precipitation variability, in the USA’s Mojave desert, found wide variations in totals between weather stations.
One of these regions of once-active dunes is the Nebraska Sand Hills in the USA. The region is made up of 57,000 square kilometres of dunes, some up to 120 metres high, that are now stabilized by grasses and receive about 500 millimetres of rainfall each year. In central southern Africa, the remains of dunes that were probably active at a similar time are today covered by dense woodland and receive a mean annual precipitation of more than 1,200 millimetres. We have convincing evidence to suggest that similar large-scale shifts in climate belts have occurred throughout Earth’s history, dating back hundreds of millions of years.
