Ecology and climate. The desert region of California is characterized by low rainfall, caused by the rain shadow of mountain ranges to the west of the desert region. The Mojave Desert receives from 3 to 10 inches (76 to mm) of rain per year, while the Colorado Desert.

The Colorado Desert is a subdivision of the larger Sonoran Desert encompassing approximately 7 million acres (28, km 2). The desert encompasses Imperial County and includes parts of San Diego County, Riverside County, and a small part of San Bernardino County.

Most of the Colorado Desert lies at a relatively low elevation, below 1, feet ( m), with the lowest point of the desert floor.
