The Dictionary of the Climate Debate (DCD)


kyr
Definition: kiloyear

One thousand years.

Notes:
1. A capitalized Kyr is considered incorrect usage.

2. According to ISO 31-1, the recommended usage is ka for kiloannum, because it avoids the implicit English bias of "year" by using a Latin root. Of course, this introduces a Latin bias.
