IJEECC Front Page

To reduce the adverse effects in Underwater Sensor Networks, many promising Routing Protocols are available to achieve many applications such as Marine information collection, underwater climate observation, pollution management, navigation and disaster prevention. The Routing Protocols plays a vital role in specific characteristics like high bit error rate, energy efficiency, packet delivery ratio and quality measures for the betterment of these applications. So, in this article we focus on the survey of the performance of different routing protocol Available in underwater wireless sensor networks.
Keywords: Localization, Routing, Reliability, Routing Protocols, Underwater Wireless Sensor
