A lot of researchers lately have attained the attention of Wireless Sensor Networks. On the other hand, when measures it up to the terrestrial or global WSN, Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSN) depicts an innovative networking standard. The exploitation of Underwater Sensor Networks is not simple or clear-cut, fundamental defies are therefore required to be mapped just because the sort of settings of underwater. This research article has illustrated a contrast between two sorts of sensor networks. Furthermore we also discussed the vital defies, facets of Underwater sensors comprising their protocols and architectures and future research prospects.
