is the sand in deserts just some sort of top layer or does it go down for several feet?

    Deserts do not receive much rainfall and are very hot.  Because of this, it is difficult for nutrients to get into and remain in the ground in a desert to make fertile soil, which creates sand.  The depth of the sand in the desert depends, but can go down hundreds of feet before a layer of bedrock beneath the sand.
