...: Higher values (>1) are typical between Guatemala and northern Costa Rica, whereas low values (most <0.5) typify central Costa Rica and western Panama. Because B/La is highly correlated with 10 Be/Be (r 2 = 0.94, excluding one sample), B/La may be a useful indicator of subduction contributions...
