For each type of desert biome, it clearly mentions where in the world the different types of biomes are predominant and characteristics of the different desert biomes

The cold desert and semi-desert biomes are found at higher latitudes

The cold desert and semi-desert biomes are found at higher latitudes. Such deserts are located in the interior parts of the continents; owe their aridity because of their distance from moisture

This is a journal article that covers the study done on the relationship between the cold desert and latitude. Therefore, we choose this journal article because it mentions information about the biomes location and it relates to the climate. This article is credible because it has a very strong opinion and does not use a bias view throughout.
