The acre-foot is a unit of volume commonly used in the United States in reference to large-scale water resources, such as reservoirs, aqueducts, canals, sewer flow capacity, irrigation water, and river flows.
Lambda (written λ, in lowercase) is a legitimate metric unit of volume equal to 10−9 m3, 1 cubic millimeter (mm3) or 1 microlitre (µL). Introduced by the BIPM in 1880, the lambda has been used in chemistry and in law for measuring volume, but its use is not recommended.
