The performance of Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSNs) can be severely affected by the dynamics of underwater environment. A surface sink is usually deployed at a pre-specified location to maximize one or more performance metrics. However, when the network is dynamic, a redeployment of surface sink should be considered to reduce the effect of mobility on the network performance. Redeployment can be done periodically, at times based on a mobility prediction models, or adaptively based on… CONTINUE READING
