Abstract: Time Synchronization algorithm guarantees the connectivity, coverage, reliability and security of networking operations for a maximized period of time. We propose energy efficient time synchronization algorithm for deployment of Underwater Wireless Sensor Network (UWSN) for the purpose of monitoring phenomenon of our interest in the coverage region. This paper describes a prototype of a synchronization protocol which is suitable for UWSN considering the effects of both propagation delay and movement. In the algorithm, no time synchronization is necessary if the time stamps of the received data packets are within the tolerance. In this context, the network underwater neither performs global time synchronizations frequently nor periodically and it reduces the time used to synchronize clocks among sensor nodes.
