Laboratory calibration data for three replicates each of five types of inexpensive methane sensors in support of a study characterizing sensor suitability for atmospheric monitoring, with particular attention to sensitivity to humidity and temperature. Sensor performance from ambient levels to 10ppm was characterized with decaying methane pulses at five different temperatures. Methane, water vapor levels, and temperature were monitored with reference instruments.

A csv file with methane, temperature and humidity measurements, and the responses of fifteen inexpensive MOx sensors.
