We present here some results of a series of field atmospheric experiments with 12 acoustic computer-controllable sensors. The experiments were conducted to study in detail the turbulence structure of the lowest atmospheric layer. The measurement data were accumulated during the experiments using different schemes of the sensors spatial arrangement in horizontal and vertical planes. Based on the measurements obtained, some spatiotemporal characteristics of wind and temperature fields as well as their dependence on the measurement altitude and thermal stratification of the ground layer are discussed.
