The acoustic propagation speed under water poses significant challenges to the design of underwater sensor networks and their medium access control protocols. Similar to the air, scheduling transmissions under water have significant impacts on throughput, energy consumption, and reliability. Although the conflict scenarios and required scheduling constraints for deriving a collision-free schedule have been identified in the past, applying them in a scheduling algorithm is by no means easy.
