Correct me if i'm wrong... but shouldn't that large bit of ice/snow near the bottom not exist on an Arid world? >.>

I`m guessing that it is dry ice and frozen Co2, like how Mars has no water but still a North and South white pole

Actually no its not. The poles of this kind of planet contain most of the water left on the surface of the planet.

Most of the frozen water on mars can not be seen as its covered by dirt and rocks. The White caps of Mars are mostly CO2, or Dry Ice.

You'd think a desert planet would have less green

Description

Unlike Temperate or Archipelago worlds, these Arid worlds were not blessed with much water. There is some evidence of these planets once having oceans. Deep canyons that resemble ocean ridges suggests that it once had liquid water to create these features. Where all the water went or how it was evacuated from the planet is a mystery. Some believe that ancient alien life may have drained the planet for its own purposes. What that purpose may be, or why they would need so much, is an even bigger mystery.

Special thanks to NASA's Landsat program and USGS.
