Tit (Arabic: ﺗﻴﺖ‎) is a town and commune in Aoulef District, Adrar Province, south-central Algeria. According to the 2008 census it has a population of 4,417,[1] up from 3,160 in 1998,[2] with an annual growth rate of 3.5%.[1]

Geography[edit]

The town of Tit lies at an elevation of 277 metres (909 ft) on the northern side of an oasis, not far from the border with Tamanrasset Province to the east. The oasis is a part of the Tidikelt region of the central Sahara that extends from central eastern Adrar Province (where Tit is located) to northeast Tamanrasset Province around In Salah. The oases in this region are sparser than in the Tuat and Gourara regions in which most of the population of Adrar Province live, but there are still a number of towns such as Aoulef, Timokten, Akabli and In Ghar. The nearby land is mostly flat aside from some small hills to the east; however further north the land rises to the Tademaït plateau.

Climate[edit]

Tit has a hot desert climate (Köppen climate classification BWh), with extremely hot summers and mild winters, and very little precipitation throughout the year.
