Abstract: Underwater wireless communication mainly relies on acoustic waves. Its unique characteristics such as slow propagation speed and low bit rate-distance product present new challenges to Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol design. In this dissertation, we focus on the design, evaluation, and analysis of handshaking-based MAC protocols. By exploiting the acoustic channel's unique characteristics, we address the issues of: (i) how to adapt the original multiple access collision avoidance (MACA) protocol for use in multi-hop underwater acoustic (UWA) networks, (ii) how to improve channel utilization of handshaking-based MAC protocols, which in turn will offer both throughput and delay gains, (iii) how to accurately analyze the saturation throughput of slotted BiC-MAC (one of our proposed MACs) in single-hop networks, and (iv) how to better evaluate throughput performance of MAC protocols in static multi-hop wireless networks.
