Acoustic area backscattering strength is 10 times the log10 of the ratio of the area backscattering coefficient to the reference value, 1 (m2 m-2). Area backscattering coefficient is the integral of the volume backscattering coefficient over a defined distance. Volume backscattering coefficient is the linear form of acoustic_volume_backscattering_strength_in_sea_water. For further details see MacLennan et. al (2002) doi:10.1006/jmsc.2001.1158.
