A special issue of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220). This special issue belongs to the section "Sensor Networks".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
About 70% of the globe is covered by water, with many underwater places still to monitor and supervise. In addition, there are many kinds of underwater environments. Advances in underwater sensors and underwater sensor networks are making them more accesible because they are cheaper, with higher computing capacity, and consume less battery. The range of applications where they can be used is increasing every day. This Special Issue is focused on collecting the latest applications, advances, and challenges in underwater sensor nodes and underwater sensor networks.
Authors are invited to submit complete original unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal. The topics can be discussed in term of the state of the art, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, new research proposals, and industrial case studies.
Underwater sensor nodes
Devices for underwater sensing
Underwater wireless sensor networks
Topologies for underwater sensor networks
Underwater sensor networks communication
Sensor networks for aquaculture, fish farming and fish monitoring
Underwater surveillance and monitoring
