Part 4 - Wrap up

Hang on! You are almost done with this exercise...

Making all those plots should have given you a better understanding for the geophysical and geochemical variations along the Central American volcanic arc. Subduction zones are not all that simple, are they? In fact, they are some of the most geologically complex and active areas of the continental crust.

For this final part of the exercise, simply write down three things about the Central American arc that (1) you did not know before doing this exercise, and (2) that you think are geologically important.

You're done!
