Key line: /BASPK,1,0 (A7,1X,I4,1X,I4)
Data line: BasMas, BasInt (1X,F6.1,1X,E11.4)
Default: BasMas = 0, BasInt = 0

The keyword /BASPK defines the mass of the highest peak in a spectrum (base peak) and its absolute intensity. The information on the absolute intensity is especially important to reconstruct data obtained from GC/MS runs. If no absolute intensity is available the parameter BasInt has to be set to a zero value. If there is more than one peak having the maximum intensity the highest mass should be selected for BasMas.
