Mean annual temperature in the Andes

Numerous studies have reported significant warming and a resulting glacier melting over the last decades. There is also growing evidence of altitude amplification, meaning that the rate of warming increases with elevation, resulting in high mountain regions experiencing faster than average temperature changes (Pepin et al., 2015; Urrutia and Vuille, 2009). The mean annual temperature in the countries of the northern Andes (Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru) has increased by ~0.8°C during the 20th century (Marengo et al., 2011).
