Abundance sensitivity
Ratio of the maximum ion current recorded at a specified m/z value to the maximum ion current arising from the same species recorded at a neighbouring m/z value.

Note: The abundance sensitivity is a measure of the contribution of the peak “tail” of a major isotope (with a certain m/z value) to an adjacent m/z value which in some cases might more than 1 m/z removed. Its value is dependent on the resolving power of the mass spectrometer.
