Climate above ground (CAG) has been actively studied since Rudolf Geiger’s original manuscript in 1940. Most of the CAG studies employ use of measurement apparatuses at a height of >1 meter or simply rely on data collected from meteorological weather stations. There is a serious gap in understanding of climate within the first meter above ground. We have designed and deployed a sensor module equipped with temperature sensors evenly spaced between 0.16 meters and 1 meter above ground. We visualized the temperature variations at various heights, and compared the readings with readings made at a height of 1.2 meters, a commonly used height for temperature readings in the literature. We attest to the past findings of "nocturnal raised minimum".
