The development in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology and its widespread application pay way for the development of Underwater Wireless Sensor Network (UWSN). In UWSN, sensor nodes are deployed under water or its surface for sensing information. These sensor nodes which are inexpensive & portable in nature; normally with limited memory, power and computational capabilities provides reliability and robustness. Also, the cost for deploying such a network is less than using Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV).
