base peak


The base peak in a mass spectrum (within the user-selected mass range) is the ion with the highest measured abundance. The relative abundance of the base  peak ion is assigned a value of 100, and the abundances of all the other ions plotted in that mass spectrum are normalized  to that value. The y-axis in a mass spectrum is therefore given in terms of relative abundance.
