Global warming has made iconic Andean peak unrecognizable

On 23 June 1802, German geographer Alexander von Humboldt and his companions could climb no higher. Plagued by altitude sickness, their gloveless hands bloodied from jagged handholds, and their boots sodden, they faced a final obstacle in their quest to climb Chimborazo, a 6268-meter-high volcano in Ecuador then thought to be the world's highest mountain. The clouds briefly parted, revealing the summit—and a chasm barring their way. They had reached "a place higher than all others that men had reached on the backs of the mountains," Humboldt boasted later. But they had to turn back, some 400 vertical meters short of their goal.

In the end, Humboldt spun his defeat on Chimborazo into a triumph that cemented his reputation as the era's superstar scientist and explorer—and his legacy. Not long after his descent from the mountain, he sketched a spectacular diagram that used the slopes of Chimborazo to depict a concept that had crystallized during his climb: that climate is an organizing principle of life, shaping the distinct communities of plants and animals found at different altitudes and latitudes. The diagram—Humboldt called it his Tableau Physique—has become what one recent paper described as "an iconic milestone, almost a foundation myth, in the history of ecology."

Today, the idea born on Chimborazo—that the physical environment shapes life's grand patterns—is giving scientists an intellectual framework for understanding a phenomenon Humboldt himself could not have anticipated: how human-driven climate change is transforming life.

Tropical mountains are ideal stages for watching climate change unfold. They compress many climates into a small space, as Humboldt wrote in his Essay on the Geography of Plants: "On this steep surface climbing from the ocean level to the perpetual snows, various climates follow one another and are superimposed, so to speak." Now, global warming is quickly reshuffling those montane climates. And few peaks record the impact of human-driven climate change more vividly than Chimborazo itself. The massive volcano, which last erupted 1500 years ago, rises just 1° south of the equator. On the peak's eastern slopes, moisture from the Amazon Basin next door—plus temperatures that rarely drop below freezing except at the highest elevations—nurture grassland, bogs, and springy cushions of moss and dwarf alpine plants, all highly sensitive to climate change. Below the summit sprawl 17 small glaciers, bellwethers of global warming and a crucial water source for tens of thousands of people living at lower elevations.

As a result, the volcano has again become a draw for researchers. Some have tracked how fast the plants that Humboldt observed are migrating upward as temperatures rise. Other scientists are probing how retreating glaciers and shifting vegetation may be altering the flow of water from the mountain to thirsty communities below. Together, those studies are mapping the interplay of plants, people, and an environment that is now changing because of humanity's impact.

The modern research adopts Humboldt's holistic approach, repurposed for an era of climate change, says ecologist Priscilla Muriel of the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador in Quito. "Data is not just data; you have to actually go out and look at things, observe things, and try to get a feel of what nature actually is."

IN JUNE, in a lush valley at 4000 meters—more than two vertical kilometers below Chimborazo's summit—geographer Jeff La Frenierre stood waist deep in a concrete irrigation channel flowing with turbid water. Clad in fishing waders, he dipped an instrument into the torrent, measuring its velocity to calibrate an automated stream gauge nearby. "This is all the water coming out of our study area," he said—the full harvest of the melting Reschreiter Glacier, Chimborazo's largest, plus the rain and snow that fall in the same 7.5-square-kilometer watershed.

For the past decade, La Frenierre, who teaches at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, has visited Chimborazo once or twice a year to study how climate change is affecting its glaciers, stream flow, and groundwater. He is astonished at how fast the ice is succumbing.

Chimborazo's glaciers have lost about 20% of their surface area since the 1980s, and the 2.5-square-kilometer Reschreiter has retreated by more than 1 kilometer, he says. Leonardo Punina Tuolombo, who grew up in an Indigenous community nearby, has watched it happen. "All the time, the glacier moves higher," says Punina Tuolombo, 37, who guides and outfits hikers and has a small farm—five cows and fields of garlic—at an elevation of 4200 meters. "I remember when I was a boy, the glacier was tremendous," he says. "Now, it's rock."

The waning of the ice has made the mountain even more treacherous than in Humboldt's day. Rocks once cemented into place by ice now tumble down its slopes, endangering climbers; one guide died this past spring. Lakes of meltwater that accumulate at the foot of the glaciers periodically burst their banks, unleashing floods that sweep mud and boulders into the valleys below. "Many lakes are collapsing," Punina Tuolombo says. In 2007, he watched a meltwater flood race down the mountain: "We saw rocks falling, people climbing hills for safety."

Similar stories are unfolding throughout the tropics. "The story of loss of glaciers is pretty common," says Bryan Mark, a geographer at Ohio State University in Columbus who has chronicled the retreat of ice and its impact on water supplies in the Andes of Peru. "It's a warming thing." High tropical mountains are among the fastest-warming regions of the planet, by about one-tenth of a degree Celsius per decade. One factor is a feedback loop familiar from the Arctic: As reflective ice and snow vanish, they expose darker surfaces that absorb more solar radiation, amplifying the warming. Changes in moisture are also speeding glacier loss. In some places, dry seasons are lasting longer, starving the glaciers of snowfall; elsewhere, precipitation that once fell as snow more often comes down as rain. And humidity is rising, which transfers heat more efficiently to the ice.

Those processes are converting Chimborazo's gleaming ice to a sodden, pitted moonscape. Seven years ago, La Frenierre planted a stake in the tongue of the Reschreiter Glacier to measure the rate of melting; this summer he found it bent, lying on bare gravel. The nearest ice was 260 meters away, above a sheer cliff.

AS THE ICE RETREATS, farmers are moving upward. When Humboldt visited Chimborazo in 1802, the farm fields ended at about 3600 meters. Now, population growth and a more benign climate have pushed agriculture hundreds of meters upslope. Dark beds of potato and other crops are encroaching on the grasslands above 4000 meters, where frosts have become rarer.

Meanwhile, rainfall has become less predictable, farmers say. At lower altitudes, irrigation can make the difference between two harvests a year—enough to survive as a full-time farmer—and one. But in the irrigation canal that drains La Frenierre's study area, annual peak flows have dropped by as much as half since the early 1980s. That decrease has strained agreements that divide the water among farming communities. "Eighty percent of the time, there's not enough water to supply the allocation," he says. As a result, "You're already starting to see conflicts between upstream users and downstream users."

La Frenierre thinks the plight of the Reschreiter Glacier, melting away 6 kilometers up the valley from the irrigation intake, is one reason. In the early years of retreat, a glacier produces a surge of meltwater, swelling streams. But as the ice shrivels, the system passes a tipping point and the flow of meltwater declines. Mark has observed that effect in Peru; on Chimborazo, too, "We could have passed the threshold to lower runoff," La Frenierre says.

To gauge the importance of that runoff, La Frenierre, hydrologist G.-H. Crystal Ng of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, and their colleagues do a kind of watershed accounting. They tally the water entering their study area—rain, snow, and glacial meltwater—as measured by automated weather stations and surveys of the shrinking ice. Then, the researchers enter those data into computer models and adjust the models to match the ebb and flow of water out of the valley, recorded by their automated stream gauges.

Water draining straight from the melting glacier can vary over just a few hours, depending on the weather. The flow is "really flashy, really peaky," Ng says. But the amount of groundwater seeping into the stream varies more slowly, over time scales of a week or so. From the tempo at which stream flow rises and falls, the models can disentangle how much of the water runs straight off the ice and how much originates as groundwater, which is fed largely by precipitation.

Ng's team has also analyzed the water's levels of dissolved minerals, mainly magnesium and calcium. They can be used to trace groundwater, which picks up the minerals as it percolates through soil and bedrock. Together, the modeling and dissolved minerals confirm that only a fraction of the flow into the irrigation system, perhaps 10%, originates directly from the glacier. But it is a crucial 10%. "The loss of 5% to 10% of your water from losing the glacier is going to only enhance the shortage," La Frenierre says. Downstream users "can't afford to lose any more water," Ng adds.

Another phenomenon is contributing to the channel's shrinking flow, and it, too, may be linked—indirectly—to glacier loss. Farther up the valley, labor cooperatives from villages on Chimborazo's drier slopes have built dozens of small concrete dams to capture water from springs. The water is diverted into pipes and canals that carry it across the flanks of the mountain and down to farms and villages, whose own springs are mysteriously drying up.

Ng and La Frenierre are investigating a possible explanation: that some of the meltwater from Chimborazo's glaciers doesn't drain directly into streams but instead percolates down into the porous volcanic rock at the base of the ice. The water then circulates underground, adding to the groundwater that feeds the wells and springs in farming communities at lower elevations. "The big question is how much of the groundwater is glacial," La Frenierre says. "That's what we're trying to quantify."

So far, the computer models suggest infiltrating melt contributes about 20% of the groundwater in their study area. If that result holds up, glacier retreat on other flanks of the mountain could be to blame for failing springs at lower elevations—which is spurring the communities to build still more water diversions that further reduce the flow in the irrigation channel.

More diversions could amplify the tensions over water. Already, La Frenierre says, "You tread very carefully when you ask [local people] about water supplies." To aid planning and defuse future conflicts, he and his colleagues hope to build a model that would forecast how glacial retreat will make water even scarcer and less reliable for downstream users—not just on Chimborazo, but on glacierized mountains everywhere.

To make their model fully realistic, however, the researchers need to include one more claimant on the mountain's water: the ranks of vegetation that Humboldt depicted—and that are now moving upslope.

ON CHIMBORAZO, gray-green lichens and pillows of moss are colonizing the rocks and gravel recently bared by retreating ice. Here and there, tabletop-size islands of brighter green stand out, each centered on a small mound of droppings deposited by vicuñas. The small, llamalike creatures, introduced to Chimborazo decades ago from farther south in the Andes, defecate on communal dung heaps, supplying a boon of nitrogen for plants.

Newly verdant slopes are easy to see on many Andean peaks. But Humboldt's data, compiled on his Tableau Physique, offer something much rarer: a chance to reconstruct a 200-year history of how plants have migrated upward. During his climbs, Humboldt stopped periodically to take elevation readings with a fragile glass barometer and, with his botanist companion Aimé Bonpland, to record and collect plants. The result is a record of mountain biogeography from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution—a unique baseline for gauging the changes since then.

A group led by ecologist Naia Morueta-Holme, then at Aarhus University in Denmark, was the first to try to tap those data. Combing the Tableau and other records Humboldt compiled, the team found information on the altitude ranges of some 50 alpine plant varieties. Then, they climbed much of the way up Chimborazo themselves to see where those plants now grow.

Their resurvey, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) in 2015, detailed a startling transformation. Whereas Humboldt had recorded an upper limit for seed plants of 4600 meters, Morueta-Holme and her team found pioneers as high as 5185 meters. Other, lower-living species—showy gentians, a spiky aster relative called Chuquiraga, purple lupines—had moved upslope by an average of more than 500 meters since 1802. It was eye-catching evidence that climate change has upended the world Humboldt mapped.

Not everyone was convinced that the data displayed in the Tableau were reliable enough to support those conclusions. Humboldt himself warned against expecting high precision from what was as much a work of art as of science, writing, "in a work of this kind, one must consider two conflicting interests, appearance and exactitude." This year, a team including Muriel scrutinized Humboldt's diaries and collections, concluding that his Tableau was not a faithful record of what grew on Chimborazo 200 years ago.

For one thing, the researchers noted, Humboldt spent just a few hours on the highest slopes of Chimborazo, and he and Bonpland collected no plants above 3600 meters. They also sampled less systematically than modern botanists. "Humboldt never has precise information about ranges. He and Bonpland probably collected plants when they first saw them," says Pierre Moret of Toulouse University in France, lead author of the paper, published this year in PNAS.

What's more, Moret and his co-authors found that much of the data Humboldt displayed on the slopes of Chimborazo actually came from another volcano, 5700-meter Antisana, 130 kilometers to the northeast. He and Bonpland spent 4 days there, collecting and recording dozens of species. Humboldt mapped the data onto Chimborazo because, well, Chimborazo was more famous.

"It's definitely messy," says Morueta-Holme, who is now at the University of Copenhagen. "We were sticking with broadscale patterns."

Moret's team decided to do its own survey of those patterns—not on Chimborazo, but on Antisana, the source of most of Humboldt's data. In 2017, the researchers systematically mapped the current ranges of 31 species there. For most, the imprecision of the Tableau made it hard to calculate just how far upslope those plants have moved. But for one species, a silvery leafed shrub called Senecio nivalis, Bonpland had clearly recorded a maximum altitude of 4860 meters, right where Antisana's permanent snow began. The plant now grows above 5100 meters, having climbed more than 200 vertical meters, in step with the rising snow line.

That's only half of the 500 meters Morueta-Holme and colleagues originally calculated, but still a dramatic shift upslope. "I'll continue to believe the patterns, but not the precise numbers," says Daniel Stanton, a botanist from the University of Minnesota in St. Paul, who works with Ng and La Frenierre. "Whether it's 300 meters or 500 meters, we're still talking about substantial change."

As the vegetation marches upward, it may be adding to the strain on water resources—in particular the groundwater likely coming from the melting glaciers, Stanton and Ng say. Plants can tap deep water and release it into the atmosphere as water vapor, which means the greening of the mountain could exacerbate water shortages in the settlements below. To forecast water flows, Ng says, "You need to account for [both glacier loss] and vegetation migrating upslope and transpiring."

The researchers hope to fine-tune estimates of how much groundwater plants are intercepting by taking samples—especially of deep-rooted, woody plants such as Polylepis, the Andean "fairy trees" with twisting limbs and papery bark. The plan is to analyze water flowing in the xylem, the water-carrying layers of wood, for tracers suggesting it came from the melting glacier. If the amounts are significant, the vegetation zones that Humboldt mapped will join glaciers, streams, and groundwater in a complex hydrological interplay, ultimately driven by global warming.

CLIMATE CHANGE and other human impacts may have made Humboldt's Tableau unrecognizable, but he remains a vivid presence for scientists following in his footsteps—including Sisimac Duchicela, who grew up in Quito, 200 kilometers north of Chimborazo, and is working on her Ph.D. at the University of Texas in Austin. In a bid to preview warming impacts, she and colleagues are doing field experiments on Pichincha, another Ecuadorian volcano Humboldt climbed. They have enclosed small patches of high-altitude vegetation in clear plastic, creating a focused, artificial greenhouse effect.

As Duchicela monitors those microcosms, she remembers how Humboldt approached those same mountains: "by looking at everything—at the little things and the big things and how they connect to each other. That part," she adds, "was particularly inspiring for me."
