The cosmogenic radionuclide ¹⁰Be is a unique tracer of shallow sediment subduction in volcanic arcs. The range in ¹⁰Be enrichment in the Central American Volcanic Arc between Guatemala and Costa Rica is not controlled by variations in ¹⁰Be concentrations in subducting sediment seaward of the Middle America Trench. Sedimentary ¹⁰Be is correlated negatively with ¹⁴³ND/¹⁴⁴Nd, illustrating that ¹⁰Be concentrations varied both between and within cores due to mixing between terrigenous clay and volcanic ash endmember components. This mixing behavior was determined to be a function of grain size controls on ¹⁰Be concentrations. A negative correlation of bulk sedimentary ¹⁰Be concentrations with median grain size and a positive correlation with the proportion of the sediment grains that were <32 [mu]m in diameter demonstrated that high concentrations of ¹⁰Be in fine-grained, terrigenous sediments were diluted by larger grained volcanogenic material. The sharp decrease in ¹⁰Be enrichment in the Central American Volcanic Arc between southeastern Nicaragua and northwestern Costa Rica correlates with changes in fault structure in the subducting Cocos plate. Offshore of Nicaragua, extensional faults associated with plate bending have throw equal to or greater than the overlying subducting sediment thickness. These faults enable efficient subduction of the entire sediment package by preventing relocation of the d6collement within the downgoing sediments
