The Dictionary of the Climate Debate (DCD)

Definition: kiloyear

One thousand years.

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.
