Although more than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, our understanding of the underwater world is still very limited due to it being a complicated and harsh environment. Wireless sensing techniques and underwater wireless sensor networks can greatly enhance humans’ cognitive capability under the ocean and lay the foundation for future smart ocean applications. Recently, wireless sensing in terrestrial environments has attracted significant attention from both academia and industry; it is based on various emerging wireless networks, such as millimeter wave wireless networks and Internet of Things (IoT). Meanwhile, recent advances in deep learning have greatly changed the way sensing systems process raw measurements; they now have highly complex and superior sensing capabilities. While terrestrial wireless sensing and sensor network solutions are inspiring the design of underwater wireless sensing, there are numerous unique challenges imposed by the nature of an underwater environment.
This Special Issue aims to report high-quality research in recent advances in underwater wireless sensing and sensor network domains. Topics of interest include but are not limited to those covered by the keyword list below.Dr. Zhi Sun

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
