PEAK SEPARATION ANALYSIS

The determination of the approximate means of the Gaussian components in the populations by the method of peak separation analysis is described. Standard statistical techniques are used to reveal the approximate mean and the coefficient of skewness of the normalized data of each Gaussian component in the population. Hence the position of the mean with respect to the class intervals can be obtained. A comparison of the statistical results of joint measurements obtained from selected cross cuts at the CSA Mine was made to determine any trends and variations with depth. As the approximate mean apparent dip angle does not necessarily correspond to the actual position at which the greatest recorded percentage (maximum relative frequency) of joints occur a comparison is also made between these results. Details are given of the methodology and includes a description of the method of differences (William F. Tanner, 1959), the standard analysis on unsmoothed data of separated Gaussian components, and the standard analysis on manually smoothed data of separated Gaussian components. The results are tabulated and discussed.
