Granitic rock samples in the Peninsular Ranges Province and Transverse Ranges Province, Southern California
The datasets in the compressed file were used in the case study of the article entitled Automated Machine Learning Pipeline for Geochemical Analysis by Germán H. Alférez, et al. Our approach was evaluated with a compositional dataset from 6 fault-separated blocks in the Peninsular Ranges Province and Transverse Ranges Province. The Peninsular Ranges are a group of mountain ranges, stretching from Southern California to Southern Baja California, Mexico. North of the Peninsular Ranges Province is the east-west Transverse Ranges Province. Around this area, there are several faults that allow the subdivision of the provinces: San Andreas, San Jacinto, Elsinore, Pinto Mountain, and Banning. There are 6 structurally-bounded units or blocks bounded by these faults: San Gabriel, San Bernardino, and Little San Bernardino from Transverse Ranges; and San Jacinto, Perris, and Santa Ana from Peninsular Ranges.
The data was collected and organized from the following reference:
A. K. Baird and A. T. Miesch, “Batholithic rocks of southern california; a model for the petrochemical nature of their source materials,” Tech. Rep., 1984, report.
The Cinco.csv file contains the original dataset with 514 samples. The CincoTrain.csv file contains the dataset used to train and evaluate the models. The CincoUnknown.csv file contains the dataset used to predict the unknown samples.
