The eye-safe lower-tropospheric temperature profiler with three wavelength differential absorption lidar (DIAL) technique which can perform the continuous temperature profile observation through daytime and nighttime is conducted. The DIAL consists of a Nd:YAG laser pumped an OPG tuned around 1573 nm of an CO2 absorption line with 2 mJ/pulse at 400 Hz repetition rate and a receiving telescope of 25cm diameter. In this paper, we show the result of continuous temperature profile observations over 25 hours from 0.39 to 2.5 km altitude in the lower-troposphere. We can see temporally the generation and disappearance of the temperature inversion layers in the planetary boundary layer.
