We report on the development of a 1579 nm pulsed fiber laser source with high peak-power, intended to be used as a lidar source for CO2 monitoring from space. We first discuss water-vapor sensitivity of spaceborne CO2 measurements by lidar and point the interest of the 1579 nm wavelength with that respect. Then we detail the current development status of the pulsed fiber laser source.
