UW-WSNs have many challenges with respect to design and routing. UW-WSNs differ from terrestrial networks in many aspects. Many design issues like limited bandwidth, high bit error rate with losses of connectivity and high propagation delay make out-of-water routing techniques unsuitable for underwater environment. In this article, routing techniques which are based on flooding will be discussed keeping in mind all the major challenges which we are not facing in terrestrial networks.
