A Survey on Current Underwater Acoustic Sensor Network Applications
Terrestrial and airborne wireless sensor networks rely on radio frequencies as their communication medium for transmitting data and information. However, sensing and subsequent transmission in sub-sea environment e.g. deep sea exploration requires all together a different approach for communication that has to be done under water. There's no escaping the fact that a huge amount of unexploited resources lies in the 70% of the earth covered by oceans. Yet, the aquatic world has mainly been unaffected by the recent advances in the area of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and their pervasive penetration in modern day research and industrial development.
