Q: Vectorizing loop conditions

I am trying to vectorize some old Fortran code and have run into
a problem. In the finite difference grid, the code checks that it
hasn't run into boundaries and so, depending on the component being
computed, it tests whether (bth(i,j)>0 & bth(i+1,j)>0) or
(bth(i,j)>0 & bth(i,j+1)>0).

I have settled on making a mask of valid bth locations with
bthz(2:in,2:jn)=~(bth(2:in,2:jn)<0 & bth(3:ie,2:jn)<0) for
example. That makes a zero mask that I then multiply by the
terms of the equation. Not very elegant, but it works in a crude
way. It calculates the edge terms (near the boundaries) which
I don't want to do.

Any ideas on vectorizing the conditional bth test(s) so that the
subsequent vectorized loop runs efficiently?

Thanks in advance.
