Peak parking
Data analysis technique used in elemental mass spectrometry to correct the intensity of an unresolved multiplet peak monitored for a specific element for contributions from a multi-isotopic contaminant. The correction is calculated from the measured intensity of a different isotopic peak of the contaminant and the known natural isotopic abundance ratio.
