For decades, there have been significant interests in monitoring aquatic environments for scientific exploration, commercial exploitation and coastline protection. Highly precise, real-time, and temporal-spatial continuous aquatic environment monitoring systems are extremely important. To support such monitoring, underwater sensor networks have emerged as a very powerful technique for many applications for underwater environment, including monitoring, measurement, surveillance and control. Based on those things, in 2009, Peng Xie et al. introduced Aqua-Sim. Aqua-sim is a simulator for underwater sensor networks developed on the Network Simulator 2 platform which effectively simulates the attenuation of underwater acoustic channels and the collision behaviors in long delay acoustic networks. Currently, there are two routing protocols including Vector-based Forwarding (VBF) and Depth-base Routing (DBR) are implemented in Aqua-Sim. Interested in the simulator, in this research we simulate the Aqua-Sim simulator by performing VBF and DBR protocol performance analysis based on energy consumption parameters.
