Sensor technology is increasing by leaps and bounds. Today we can find smaller and more powerful sensor devices than few time ago. In some cases even cheaper. This fact allows the development of cheaper infrastructures for underwater monitoring, a wider range of underwater monitoring applications, the inclusion of more parameters for the observation of aquatic plants, fish or seafood, and the implementation of more complex data adquisition systems. Cheaper devices with better features facilitate the deployment of underwater sensor networks for coral reef conservation, aquaculture precision implementation and and sea pollution monitoring. More than 70% of the Earth is covered by water (about 97% of all the Earth's water is contained within the oceans as salt water), so there is a huge underwater environment to discover and research which needs new sensors and sensor networks. Moreover, there are multiple ways to communicate wired and wireless including acoustic, optical and Radio Frequency (RF) communications.
You are welcome to submit an original unpublished work related with underwater sensor nodes and underwater sensor networks.

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 2200 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.
