The authors' node clustering has been considered in Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks (UWSNs) to improve energy efficiency and prolong network lifetime. Network survivability is a great concern in cluster-based UWSNs. In this paper, they propose a dependable clustering protocol to provide a survivable cluster hierarchy against cluster-head failures in such networks. The proposed clustering protocol attempts to select a primary cluster head and a backup cluster head during clustering so that the cluster members associated with the failed cluster head can quickly switch over to the backup cluster head in the event of a cluster-head failure.
