Analytical instrument name
Analytical instrument name: IC
Analytical instrument name: <instrument_name>
The analytical instrument name uniquely identifies an instrument within the laboratory.
A change in the analytical
instrument name will be registered as start of a new time series, even
if the same parameter has been measured before at the station. This is
meant to ensure that a time series is internally comparable.
The analytical instrument name makes it possible to distinguish datasets from several instruments of the same type and
model that may
be run in parallel in a laboratory.
