Hi all,

I am writing to check that the squared radius of Earth in kilometres (km), as opposed to the squared radius of Earth in metres (m) should be used to dimensionalise areas returned by the pygplates get_area function?

I am asking because the documentation suggests that kilometres should be used, although the unit of length in the international system of units (SI) is the metre.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Cheers,

Nico
