Date Added: May 2012
Format: PDF

In this paper, a detailed survey on the current protocols for medium access control layer and routing layer in the area underwater acoustic sensor networks are given. This survey is on some of the best MAC protocols and routing protocols and also it compares them based on some critical parameters which are considered a constraint in underwater acoustic communication. Underwater sensor networks are becoming popular every day due to their unique characteristics that make them easy to deploy in areas where adverse environmental conditions exist.
