PROJECT TITLE :
Effects of Wind-Induced Near-Surface Bubble Plumes on the Performance of Underwater Wireless Acoustic Sensor Networks
This paper analyzes the effects of close to-surface oceanic bubble plumes on the overall performance of underwater wireless acoustic sensor networks (UWASNs). The existence of bubble plumes in surface and subsurface ocean water columns is inevitable in most windy oceanic environments. There exists studies reporting the anomalous behavior of acoustic signal propagating through oceanic bubble plumes thanks to absorption and scattering. However, most of the existing network protocols designed for use in UWASNs are ignorant of those effects. In this paper, we have a tendency to initial mathematically model the absorption effects of those bubble plumes on the acoustic communication media. Consequently, the general performance of UWASNs is studied with respect to totally different parameters. Simulation-based results show that in the presence of bubble plumes, packet delivery ratio decreases by 34% while average energy consumption per node will increase by seven%. As well, signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio decreases by $sim fifty three$ % and bit error rate increases by fifty seven% within the presence of bubble plumes in UWASNs.
