Seema Yadav , Sanjiv Kumar Tomar. "An Improved Clustering Approach in UWSN to improve Network Life". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V4(5):1826-1829 May 2013. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group.


A sensor network is the distributed network splitted in number of clusters. The major concern in this network architecture i s the decision about the cluster formation as well as the selection of cluster head over the clustered nodes. The effective cluster head selection results the improved network life as well as the communication. In fixed networks this kind of decision can b e taken easily by implementing the standard clustering protocol , But in case of Underwater sensor network it is also to manage the network localization and the movement of nodes over the network. In this paper, the idea is presented for a new clustering a pproach so that network reliability will be improved
