Subject: Re: megalitres

According to Russ Rowlett's "How Many? A Dictionary of Units of 
Measurement" cited on this Ask Dr. Math page:

  http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/60697.html

the abbreviation for "megaliter" or "megalitre" is Ml or ML:

megaliter (Ml or ML)
a metric unit of volume equal to 1000 cubic meters. Commonly 
used in reservoir and water system management outside the U.S., 
the megaliter equals 264 172 U.S. gallons or 0.810 713 acre foot.

I hope that is helpful.
Suzanne
