Desertification can tale place with any ground cover. A lack of rain causes the soil to dry out, the vegetation to die and be stripped away, the soil becomes exposed and then is eroded by aeolian processes. Moorland in the UK is not going to become desert unless there is no fog. Rainfall isn't necessary when fog is involved as it provides enough moisture for soil cover to grow. When can you last remember a full year without any fog?
