 Myr - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The "M" is the SI prefix for Mega or million, with "yr" simply an abbreviation for "year".
Often the "M" is shown in lowercase, as in "100 myr", which is an incorrect usage, because a lowercase "m" would signify milli, or thousandths, such that "100 myr" would indicate a period of just over a month. /wiki/Myr   (176 words)

Paul R. Renne and Igor M. Villa in the October issue and Andrew V. Okulitch in the April/May issue discuss the use of annum (a) and its multiples ka, Ma, Ga. The former don't use any plural form in their text, the latter uses "anna". /pubs/gsatoday/ltr0505.htm   (178 words)

 Community Biodiversity Network: Australia: Mega-diverse, mega destructive - 29 March 2000
No verifiable, concise figures are available, however some 40,000 to 50,000 ha per annum are reported to be converted to improved pasture or feed crops for cattle, and 5,000 to 6,000 ha cleared for mixed horticulture (bananas, mangoes, etc.).

The AGO estimated 1,370 ha per annum cleared between 1996 and 1997, and 1999 permit information is also of that order. /member/cbn/projects/LifeLines6.1/NatVegAcf.html   (1822 words)

From the map above we see that Europe and N America moved separately prior to 400 Ma (Mega annum = million years ago), then moved together from 400 to about 200 Ma, and the split again.
The observation that the pole positions sometime coincide and sometimes do not indicates that the continents were sometimes moving together and sometimes moved separately.
The convergence at 400Ma produced the Appalachians and the split at 200 Ma was the start of the Atlantic Ocean. /dept/geo/pe1/chapter3.html   (2844 words)
