Space-based measurements of water vapor, temperature, and wind velocity conducted with Tm,Ho:YAG technology emitting at 2 microns are reported. Emphasis is placed on an investigation of spectral lines, laser transmitter and receiver requirements, and parametric studies leading to the final instrument design. Transmitter and receiver requirements, and mass, size, and power budgets for the three selected lidar concepts (incoherent DIAL, coherent DIAL, and coherent Doppler wind lidar) are presented in tabular form.
