 A barad is a dyne per square centimetre ($$dyn \cdot cm^{-2}$$), and is equal to $$0.1 Pa$$ ($$1 \, micro \, bar$$, $$0.000014504 \, p.s.i.$$). Note that this is precisely the microbar, the confusable bar being related in size to the normal atmospheric pressure, at $$100\,dyn \cdot cm^{-2}$$. Accordingly barad was not abbreviated, so occurs prefixed as in $$cbarad = centibarad$$. Despite being the coherent unit for pressure in c.g.s., barad was probably much less common than the non-coherent bar. Barad is sometimes called $$barye$$, a name also used for $$bar$$.
